This really depend on just how much you want those fish.
Totally do-able if you place them temporarily after transport into a big, Rubber Maid trashcan, or some kind of large tub. I would keep things going in those temporary containers during tank set up, with running the filtration that is installed on the aquarium NOW.
Lot of advantages that way.
- You get the fish.
- You get established filtration.
Just may want to be (very) careful when acclimatizing those to their new water parameters at your home. Because, your water might be a lot different from where they are located now. Other than that, the big question is: how much do you want those fish?
