My filter top gasket started leaking last night. I had to take it out of the system. I won't be able to get repair parts for at least several days. I have heavily planted (jungle) 92 gallon corner tank. The filter that has been disconnected is a Penn Plax Cascade 1500 (hate it!) I'm also running an Eheim 2215. I still have decent circulation in the tank. I also have a Cobalt Aquatics MJ1200 power head that operates through a surface skimmer and pumps through the Griggs reactor and 2 Hydor Koralia Nano 425's. I don't think I have a very large bioload. 4-Dennison Barbs, 2 Red and Blue Tetras, 4 head and tail lights, 6 neons, 5 otos a couple of Serpae tetras and a few Amano shrimp. It's been about 20 hours without the filter. Just tested and have 0 ammonia and 0 nitrites. I turned one of the HK425's toward the surface to provide some good ripple as the spray bar from the Cascade was the only surface agitation.
All my options for getting this back on line are for the middle of next week. Do you think I'll be ok until then? Should I get the Fluval 306 I have going and installed this weekend to help? I can certainly do daily ammonia test until I get back to full capacity. Thanks in advance for your experienced opinions!
