Or you could just add fish... <g>

Our power was out a few weeks ago, so we took those fish we could catch
(only about half of the fish from my planted tank) to a sleepover party at a
friend's fish room.  Life being typically hectic, they stayed there for
about two weeks.

We just brought them back last weekend, and my plants went crazy!  I hadn't
noticed slower growth during those two weeks, but they obviously appreciated
the infusion of ammonia/nitrates/whatever.
