my filter rattled and died - help
I have a little 2.5 gallon Eclipse Explorer aquarium which has the built in filter with bio-wheel for my betta. This morning it was rattling. I turned it off and turned it on again and what sounded like a pebble in there moved all around as the water came back up and then must have lodged somewhere to block things turning. Nothing happens now. This appears to be a sealed system so I can't see how to open it up to look inside.
Anyone familiar with this pump to give pointers? How long can my bio wheel sit not turning before the good bacteria die? I can probably go out and just buy another one in a few hours but I doubt the stores are open yet.
