Need help quickly, Betta Tank Filter?

Woke up this morning to screaming Betta Filter. I turned it off. Fish is in 5 gallon tank, water is too low, which is strange as I usually clean and re-add water about every three weeks. I can't clean it right now, as siphon, water conditioner, etc. is not at my house. Will it hurt him until I can get it later tonight?

A few hours should not be a problem. But do get a new one as soon as you can. I would urge that you change 50% of your water every week -- 3 weeks is too long.

Good luck!

I wouldn't say 50% - that could cause some problems with the bio load and stress - 30% a week is sufficient :)
