Add some inverts, snails or crabs. They will keep it going. I haven't heard of it dying without fish though because we leave the tank fallow when treating ich. Do you have live rock?? If so, it shouldn't die, anyone else??

You could probably put in a pinch of fishfood every other day for the BB. I think that would work. Otherwise if you have a CUC that'll hold the tank until you get fish. If no CUC, then now's a good time to invest in one.

Yep, just add a pinch of food every couple days an that'll break down into ammonia and feed the BB. Just do that until you get something in there.

If that happened over night , that's a little weird maybe there's something else that hitched a ride in your live rock , cause it looks like its been eaton, that's kind of sudden for an infection..
