Running without a filter
What are the implications of running without a filter for a couple days? I was hoping to have all my parts this weekend but my filter came in all busted and had to be sent back so I'm waiting on a new one to get here (Tuesday).
So basically I want to go ahead the do most of the major work on the tank this weekend and get rid of my crappy Eclipse top, but that means losing the filter that is currently running. Are there any problems with doing this? Should I just wait till next weekend when I have all the parts on hand?
I do have a small filter running in the tank for co2 diffusion, but I doubt that thing does much of anything filter wise, but maybe it's enough.
