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.
See... I admire that.. SO many plants.. and I can't wait for my tank to take off.. The 24-48hr wait however, I dont see why your fish wouldnt survive.. I would do a 30% water change tho.. even with the water level down 4inches. That way, whatever your filter was suppose to clean out of the water, you can relieve instantly. Even without the 30% water change, I believe your fish will be fine.
