How long can corals survive

Without a current. My power head broke tonight and I will first be able to have a new one up and running tomorrow afternoon. *sigh*

Not sure what corals you have, but I've had my pumps off for a day and a half straight and the corals were fine. 24 hours should be ok.

24 hours is ok that's about how long they are in a bag during transport when ordering online but anything past that and you'll be pushing it

Thank you!! It just died (well, the arm attached to the wall broke so I stopped it before it fell completely off). New powerhead should be in by 5:30 pm tomorrow.

I only have two corals: zoa and duncan

It's the fish I'd worry about. Do you have an air pump? Maybe toss an air stone in there until tomorrow. A tank I kept a few years ago was without power for 14 hours and I lost 90% of my fish, and all my shrimp and crabs.
