Filter block & BB

Hi,

I usually fill my tank SPEC V to the level that covers the top of my filter block in its compartment.

I just noticed that the water level went lower than the top of the block (1/4") and the foam block 1/4" felt dry.

My question is :
Do I lose the BB in that dry 1/4" section or everything else in the block (2 Biomax bags) that are submerged in the water? I do believe that the foam is about 1/2" in the area at the top of the foam block before the section for the Biomax comaprtment starts. So I am pretty sure the top Biomax bag has been submerged.

I poured Stress Zyme (2.5cc/5g of water) on the top of the foam block and then added 64oz of dechlorinated water into the main tank area.

Any thoughts? Thanks.

No, the bacteria will be fine ... besides, that sponge is HUUUUUUGE, lol ... a little loss won't hurt anything if you did lose it. You certainly wouldn't lose all of it even the sponge was dry at the top - and I can't imagine it was really, really dry unless you left it for days like that.

I just posted in the other thread - if you have the bottom hole blocked, be careful and DO NOT let it get lower than the top intake ... the bottom hole is a "safety hole" (although it's also a shrimp killer) in case the water level gets low.

Thanks, i was paranoid because it took me 2 months to get to this point of having the tank cycled.
