CO2 ran out

How bad is it not to have CO2 for a day? sometime today my CO2 will run out and tomorrow after work like 5pm I will hook it back up.....
How bad will that be for my plants? I know its like crack for them.

They will uproot themselves and beat you up while you are sleeping.

If no co2 then I would leave the light off until you get it refilled. It definitely stunts the plants growth and opens a door for algae to get a foothold.

I agree, just leave the light off until you get the CO2 hooked up. They have cloudy days in the tropics too. :-)
