Hello all, I am leaving the house for an extended time like 2 weeks. RES (Turd) is going to sons house in her travel tank we shall call it. Her 125 gallon tank will be at the house with its 120 gallons of water in it.

New to this having to travel away from the house so ? is what to do with the tank. In July when we left tank was drained and left while we were gone for 2 weeks. Thoroughly cleaned when we got back all set up again for the last 3 months. Now have to leave again and dont really want to go through the draining etc again.

1. Is it okay to just shut all off and let water stand still in tank for 2 weeks?
2. Leave surface aggitator on and shut all else off?
3. Leave FX5 and aggitator running and unplug heater & light?

Leaving in the next day so need input from other RES lovers.

Thank you.

I would probably do option 3.
