    Do we have any idea how long BB survives without fish?
    I took a filter cartridge out yesterday and put in bucket with tank water.
    Hoping I have 48hours

    I think its a week till it goes dormant then a month till it starts to die off.

    You've got 48 hrs. Pretty sure you can feed them, and go longer with a little ammonia...
