Broken air pump

My topfin air pump crapped out today I was wondering A: what is a pump you recommend and B: how long can my fish hangout without one


10 gallon tank, 3 zebra danios, might be moving -_-

Umm....is the airpump your only filtration? If you have some other type of filter you may not need an air pump as long as you have sufficient oxygen exchange happening.

Pretty much all the air pumps are low quality these days. The good side is that they are also fairly inexpensive. I tend to like the Rena pumps. Quiet and small.

Nah I have my bubbler then my separate filter.

So just having a filter will be ok? I still plan to get another pump but until then I will just let it be

As long as your filter is providing surface agitation it will be fine.

For example, pretty much any filter that hangs over the back of the tank will work.
