Hi, my penguin power filter has quit working altogether, its only a few weeks old, i have tried everything to get it started, cleaned it out, impeller is clear, i have tried everything, rang Marineland and they told me to take it back to store where i bought it, thats ok but cant go till tomorrow, worried about fish, i have 2 bubble wands in tank, and i put in a filter that i got with the tank, its better than nothing, but i am not sure about the Bio wheel, should i just float it in the tank till i get a new pwer filter? cos otherwise wont i lose the good bacteria? then tomorrow i can just put it in the new filter? i just got this tank clear and everything right, now i am worried things will start to go wrong cos of this. If i leave the wheel out of the tank, will the bacteria die and dry out?? please give me some advice, thanks.
