Filter - how long off before problems?

Our electricity is off today from 8:30am this morning through until 4pm this afternoon.

I borrowed a whacking great UPS from work which keeps a 700w server running for 20 minutes and I figured this would run my teeny 10w TetraTec EX600 for most of the power-off period - it seems this may not have lasted as long as hoped, my wife just texted to say she thinks the UPS has ran-out, so the filter will be without power for about 5.5-6hrs.

I can't do anything about this now, but should I expect trouble or will it bounce back well enough?

I had this in February mine was off from 8.55 am to 5.23 pm, I just cut back on the feeding for a few days, and kept an eye out for ammonia/nitrite spikes, but didn't get either:)

Mine was off overnight a while back. Everything was fine, I think that as long as it's not days then it shouldn't be a problem.
