I'd say she'll be fine if you found it quickly. What a pain to have to clean up, I feel for you :(

ok i cleaned the rocks twice- first time i tried setting it up again i could still see cracker bits
my plants were pretty shreded from being pulled up and cleaned- but they were all full of crackers- ick
Lulu is in her emergency critter keeper but it's way tiny- the smallest size they make- and she is very unhappy
debating when i should put her back in the tank- her water might get too cold if i leave her in the critter keeper overnight- but i don't want her breathing microscopic bits of cracker i'm sure are still in there :(

I'd let it settle for a bit and then put her back in. I don't know what the temp is where you live, but it gets pretty freezing at night here.

yeah the water looks clearer- I was going to the pet store to get plant food later- I'll see if they have ghost shrimp- they can probably clean up any left over crackers
