Does anybody know how to keep a tank warm without the heater because mine recently broke and I don't have the money at the moment to buy a new does anyone know a way to keep an aquarium warm for a few days while I wait to get a new one

very warm water (never boiling!) into a soda pop bottle (capped) can help keep the water temp up slightly. It'll be hard to keep the temp stable but it can work in an emergency situation.

Depending on the size of the tank, you may need to use a small bottle or multiple large ones.

Size of the tank? That might be critical to what will work. Leaving the lights on and covering it as much as possible will help. Extra light bulbs placed nearby can help heat it. Putting them underneath is better than above as heat rises. If it is a small tank, watch for over heating as well. Small tanks can change temperature much quicker than larger tanks.
