Lamarcks angel

So I bought a angel fish and he is a Lps eater. I have had a really tough time catching him but I finally got lucky and caught him. So now I have an issue. I won't be able to take him to the local fish store untill like 6 pm. Will it be safe to keep him in a bucket untill then, or should I try to put him in the refugium. I don't want him to Die but I can't put him in the display. Will he survive in a bucket for a day

With enough water and an airstone, the fish should be fine overnight in the bucket. Consider that they are shipped in bags for 24 hours with just water and oxygen, keeping them in a bucket with air is fine. Just don't over or under pump the air. If the fish is breathing normally after about 20- 30 minutes, the airflow should be fine.
Hope this helps
