    After about 6 hours any beneficial bacteria that has colonized in the filter media will start to die off and every time you turn the filter back on-you might be flooding the tank with BB byproduct or ammonia. However, since this is a 10gal with live plants and if you rinse the filter media before you turn the filter on-All should be fine-I am assuming this is a HOB type filter. Good that you are not doing any 100%-not needed on a regular basis in a 10gal with or without an established nitrogen cycle.
