Keeping a filter "alive" even after a tank's been taken down.
So, I thought I should ask these questions since the semester's starting to come to a close, and I got to think about packing up and heading home to Hawaii on December 17th. Which means taking down my tank before I leave.
Question, is it possible to keep the filter cycled while I'm away? I will be gone for about a month, and will be setting the tank up again in January. Is there a way to keep the bacteria in the tank alive while I'm gone?
Also, it would be great if I could use some of the "used" aquasoil in January. Is there a way to keep the bacteria in that alive while I'm gone too?
