Filter issues on a tank in the process of being set up
My Zoomed 501 died. I know, everybody is shocked that such a well built piece of machinery would die after only 2 years of service. Well, it did. Here's the issue...
I'm in the process of setting my Fluval Flora back up. I had the 501 running for over a week so I went to the fish store, bought a couple male endlers and some water wisteria. That was yesterday. Last night, well, the 501 will be missed.
My response was to quickly order an Eheim 2213. The issue is, it's not expected to be here until 9/25.
So, now I have 2 fish, some plants, 2 snails, and no filter and no flow.
I can add some flow if need be with a very small power head I happen to have...or a lot of flow with a large Eheim pump I used to use on my reef tank (probably a bad plan).
Will the endlers, both of them, be fine with the wisteria taking up their nutrients without a filter? Will the flow help or is it just a waste of my time to plug in my tiny little power head?
