fablau Thank you for your reply and info, appreciated. As I am discussing on another thread on these forums, and very detailed on this one:

http://www.barrreport.com/showthread.php?t=17533

I plan to keep filters running with carbon inside, and add airlines back and forth from outside. That should make the trick. Thanks!

I know this is a old thread, but more details on that would be great. In my big 75gl tank, I have a wet/dry filter, and I guess better stop everything to avoid mixing poisoning air with water... What do you think?
I kept the media alive. I left a small amount of water in the ahem canister. I opened up both pots and placed the filters outside, in shade with a breeze. It kept the media alive.

Bump: must remove all equipment

lochaber I'm a bit late to this thread, but glad to hear things made it okay.

'no hassles'...

Might want to consider running some carbon the next couple days, just for cheap insurance/etc.

Probably not what you want to hear, but when I first seen the 'termites' heading, my first thought was 'cool, cheap/free live food'

WestHaven That gas line is scary. It's good you found it before it had an accident. Good luck with your tanks.
