No power supply!!!

How long my 5g reef tank can withstand without any water movement, lights and so on due to no power supply?

Not very long. You can stir it with your hand to keep things moving. How long do you think this will last?

As long as the temp doesn't get too low you can last a few days just by following this little tip I learned from Anthony Calfo.
Take a large tupperware container, poke a small hole in the bottom, fill it with your tank water and position it over the tank so the water slowly drips back into the tank. Do that every hour, or more often if possible. It will help keep the water oxygenated.
