no filter for 24-48 hrs?
I need to do some maintenance on my filter so i am going to have to lower the water level about 4 inches and and keep the filter off. My tank is VERY heavily planted with very fast growth; so much so I have had to take fish out of my other tanks just to have someplace for the over growth. The heater will still be on. I have to use aquarium safe silicone sealant so that is why I have to keep the water down and filter off for 24-48 hours. Will my fish be ok with that? I can't put them in my other tanks because the sharks are just way to big.
5 Bala sharks- Hans, Frans, Ace, Gary and Mary Catherine Gallagher
1 clown pleco- Bobo
1 black ghost knife fish- Twist 2
Tons of plants

Guppy tank- breeding like crazy

Check out my tank!!!
Yeah they will be fine as far as the filter. I would be more concerned about the uneven temperature if you don't have a current. Ideally you should keep water moving to have a even temp. I would probably just manually move some water around a few times each day.
.... I'm probably drunk.
This is how I lurk
