My filter just blew out. How long can goldfish live without a filter?

The filter has been on and off for two days and today it stopped and won't turn back on. But hopefully I can get one a the petstore.

Or if I can fix it how? It sort of just stopped.

Thanks for the help!

You could try seeing if the propeller inside can move freely. open the filter up and try to spin it with your fingers, as scrivens said it might be a blockage Smiley But older filters do sort of perish after a while so...

Have you checked the fuse in the plug? That might have blown out. If so you just need to buy replacement fuse simple and cheaper than a new filter.

I had forgotten to take out the carbon when Molly got stuck in the filter add I added Melafix.
