Not long. What broke on it? Have you any contacts with the Winnipeg Aquarium Society (one of the members may be able to get you the needed part/s before morning)?

Have you any air pumps, that you can aerate both your tank and filter media?

i wouldn't worry about it too much. most people don't even like putting in canister filters.

My 10 year old 303 broke over the weekend. I set up a powerhead to pump water through the dead filter and on to my chiller.

I am planning on buying a new canister filter tomorrow.
