Broken pump

I have a 45 gal fowlr and my Fluval canister filter pump broke yesterday and I'm going to buy a new one ASAP. Is my tank safe for a few days without one? I have a phos-reactor and two power heads moving water around pretty good. If I change water every day, am I safe? Thanks...

I think you will be just fine, get the replacement filter as soon as you can though. As long as you have some live rock in the tank it should be ok.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
