I take that back. Today my filter stopped working completely. I plugged it into a different outlet, into a power strip, drained the filter, etc. Nothing made it come back on. Maybe I git a lemon; I don't know. Taking it back and getting the penguin 200 or tetra whisper. The AC was kind if noisy, too, but the water flow was great and my rank was crystal clear.

Since I'm currently cycling my tank, what's going to happen if all I have on is my air pump? Is it going to ruin the cycle? The filter stopped working about an hour ago, and I won't have a new one hooked up til 630 Tuesday evening. That's 20.5 hours :/

If the air pump is on an ug filter no it wont interfere it will still produce the bb. It also will not interfere with the cycle if not because the good bacteria you want at the end of a cycle is only going to do any good if it is formed in the filter bio media. so in short it will not do anything wont help or not help. IMO i would get another aqua clear they are a far superior filter its all i use.
