Chilled_Fire, Yeah thanks. I think I'm going to drain it tonight or tomorrow. Then dry things out a little and wait plant new stems early next week.
My only concern (I'm a little new to this) is on my filter and tubings, it being wet and all now. I wonder what would happen to the filter media after a few more weeks of emersed waiting. I'd hate to see mold grow in my filter canister.
Aside from me just doing it and see what happens - anyone out there with experience on draining and waiting?
