    Even once a day can be too much. I found that with my tanks, once a day feeding drives nitrates way up and invites pest snails infestation. I feed every other day.

    There is nothing in the canister that can create toxins, the parts in it are essentially the same as in a HOB - plastic surroundings that house sponges and porous media for bacteria.

    Online freshwater nano fish store?

    I remember reading about a small online store specializing in freshwater nano fish and, I think, inverts. I can't find the link now that I want it. Does anybody have it please?

    I don't see any point in yanking it all out. You just need to start putting in ammonia and test often to see what's going on. Even in the worst case, if it turns out that all the old bacteria died,...

    I wouldn't add any more fish to your tank. According to your other post, you have "15 guppies, at least 10 sword tails and 2 yellow gouramis". That sounds like full stocking for a 35g.

    I would also throw some fish food in before you leave. Pellets for carnivorous fish would be best for that. They would soon start gradually decomposing, producing the needed ammonia for several days.
