can you go out and grab a tank and filter? Just until you can find the new tank? It can also be used as your qt when your done with it......

Fill your bath? Kinda depends how long until you get new tank. You just need something that will hold your stock rock etc

(A) offer the buyer a partial (10-20%) refund to wait a few days till you find a new tank
(B) buy an inexpensive aquarium kit from petco and return it when you find a suitable tank
(C) buy a 54 gallon tote from Home Depot for $25 and keep your fish and inverts there till you find a suitable aquarium. Good luck!

Ideal is plead with buyer of yours or get a tank to use in the mean time or get your new tank sooner

Would a 10g do for a pair of caramels and a sixline plus a pair of skunk cleaners?

I would get a 20-27g tub (you can get it at lowes or home depot) and buy a filter and heater the same size as you want for your new tank (well unless your doing a sump) and stick them in there with all you rock and coral. With the light on top.
