maintaining a tank without the filter and no fish?
« on: December 15, 2011, 05:18:20 AM »

so yeah, it's time to go home for winter break. i'm guessing if i just leave my tank sit in my dorm for a month without filtration or feeding or anything that it'll kill the bacteria in my filter, in the gravel, etc? i should take it home and keep the filter running, right? just wanting to make sure.

If you have no fish, I don't really see why you should worry. Just unplug the filter and go home.
The bacteria won't be using much oxygen on their own, and you probably won't get fish tomorrow so it'll have perfectly enough time to stabilize again when you'll be back Smiley
