My fluval c4 quit working. I took apart and clean. It was working when I put back together. I set it on the counter turned around and my shirt snaged it. Needless to say I had a million pieces after it hit my tile.
I took all my filter media and set it in my tank. 19 hours without circulation. I bought a ehiem canister put all my old media in the first chamber.
Today just got home and all my ghost shrimp are dead (feeders). I did not get to test my water yet. So I don't know the results. I will get a chance tonight.
My question is can bb stay in stagnant water for 19 hours an survive or am I cycling again?

You might have to go through another cycle. It might not be as long though because maybe some of the bacteria survived.
