A couple of water parameter questions

I've had to take my tank down to make a few repairs (leaky seals grrrrrrr) and I've only had one filter running on my holding tank. My other two filters has not been up and running, but I did leave water in them. Has all of the beneficial bacteria been lost? I've kept the substrate in a rubbermaid tub, with some water left in the bottom. When I get everything back up and running will I have to wait out before adding my fish back to the tank?

The tank has been down for about 2.5 weeks. Far too long for me, but this happened a week after I moved to my new house. The holding tank doesn't have any substrate in it, it is just a bare bottom.
