It's better than nothing, but not nearly enough for a tank that size. Assuming you have not added any new fish, and you feed very sparingly, you should be able to get by until the new filter arrives. I would keep a close (daily) watch on ammonia/nitrite levels though and be ready to do a water change if those levels start to rise.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
