Ahh! my filter died!

i think my filter knew i had ordered an upgrade because when i was doing a pwc today when i turned the filter back on and tried to prime it, the dang thing wouldn't kick in. i sat there for 30 min putting water through it waiting for it to start flowing and.... nothing! i have two day till the new one comes in, i was going to run them together until the new one had enough bb built up to take the old one off but now what? can my fish and plants survive with just a bubbler and pwc till then?

oh just so you know the specifics, its a 10g tank with a HOB penguin 100B on it (the one that died)
and i am replacing it with a HOB Fluval C2
