Light emergency

Hey guys. My light burnt out. I ordered a new one but its gonna take a few days to get here. I have 2 live plants. Should I move the 2 plants into my 5 gallon for now? It will prob crowd the 5 gallon tank thou. I just dont want the plants to die

Yeah, I'd go ahead and move them over to the 5 gallon. Just make sure that you know nothing in your aquarium is infected and can be transferred from tank to tank. (and check for snails if you have them!)

Your plants should be fine for up to a week without the light and some plants even longer.
