Beneficial Bacteria Lifespan

Recommended Posts

Hey guys my Aquaone Nautalis 2700 has shit itself, this happened Thursday and will be getting a FX6 as a replacement on mon/tues, is it worth using some filter material from the old filter or will all the bacteria be dead? I will be keeping the coral rubble to help with pH but not sure if adding anymore will be beneficial?

Drain and put the aged media into a bucket with a wet towel over. It will stay moist and keep bacteria alive for several weeks. 

The tank and substrate will have plenty of biofilm/established bacteria as well so you should be fine.
