Well you have to consider what happens when the power goes out for a
while.  The bubble keep going in and the water is topped.  That can
creaate a big enough B-ubbl-E to prevent the impeller from gettting
enough water flow going to "burb" the filter.  If you have the 2028,
that not only moves oodles of, but more than the laws of physics
provide allow -- see prior posts re the water flow of 2026 and 2028
filters  ;-)

Depends on "temporary."  Possibly, when it's dangerous to fish, it
isn't the stopping that is damaging but the restart after a big die off
in the filter.
