Sorry I wasn't very clear. My canister filter broke.It was a tiny little clip near the impeller My husband said he can proably fix it but he is away until Saturday.In the meantime I have to use the ehiem. If I continue to do daily water canges of say 50% should that help?

Put your media from your canister filter into your ehiem (if itll fit) or put it in a stocking and float it in the tank to keep the bacteria alive and in the tank. this way the bacteria can still preform their function and may migrate into the tank/filter.

If you go that way, I'd consider leaving out the finer media and just use the larger stuff as there won't be enough flow around the wool to keep everything in there chugging along and it might have enough debris trapped in it to make it more trouble than it is worth.
