I'm on vacation until Thursday and got call from grandapa who is taking care of my fish while I'm gone saying that storm knocked the power out. How long can the fish last without the filter pumping oxygen into the tank?

I second this. If you have air running in the tank, you can hook up a sponge filter directly to the airline, just like an air stone. Only issue is that most chain stores don’t carry them for whatever reason, so you may have to order one from Amazon. It probably won’t be great as a permanent filter, but it will be enough until you have the funds to purchase the filter you want.Donthemon said:Keep up on water changes. Problem is where are you beneficial bacteria gonna live and survive. Can you afford a sponge filter? There like 6 bucks.
