Lights out

My glass shattered on my mh fixture yesterday.... I have taken the fixture to glass shop to have new piece tempered glass cut- but will take 2 wks to get in- no one around where I live can cut tempered glass.... How long can I go without lighting??? Tank is approx 180 gal- minimal coral

Why won't your fixture work? I can't imagine why glass (aside from the bulbs themselves) would cause a fixture not to work...

Get plexiglass. It can be cut thinner, and does not crack
