I unplugged my filter for feeding. Witch is what I normally do. But I got distracted by my new fish and walked away. Its been of 3 hours. I just plugged it back in. I know beneficial bacteria can survive for a while but 2 days ago I had a power outage. How much might be left if any?!
Bacteria doesn't just die off it actually will go dormant after 48 hours and then its like a week till it starts dying off.
