Question Is having a ADF's filter of for 2.5 days a big problem?

I'm so frustrated! My filter just STOPPED working. My husband and I did everything we could, but we couldn't figure it out. Tomorrow is memorial day so I can't buy a new one tomorrow, but I will go the next day for sure. His tank is cycled, but will his water start getting bad if the filter is off? It will be 2.5/3 days tops until I get a new filter.

No, it will be fine. I didnt use a filter for 3 yrs with my ACF, and I never had a water quality problem... And they are much dirtier than ADFs!
What filter are you getting? I really like the Top Fin brand- They are totally silent, and the current flow is adjustable, which is a must with froggies. Thats what I use with my boy, and his water stays crystal clear!

What kind of filter did you have? It might be fixable but I can't offer suggestions without knowing the model (even if you bought a new one, it doesn't hurt to have an extra).

If you're doing water changes, it should be fine. Just monitor your water parameters for the next week or two since the tank may go through a "mini cycle".
