Temp Coral Storage

I am working on setting up my tank but have to move so it is postponed. I might have a good chance to gets some amazing deals on corals in a few weeks. Is there any way I could set up a cheap small 10 gal to hold these corals temporarily. Looking at just some softies and maybe small stoneys

It's not easy. Many corals need an established/stable aquarium to do well. Setting up a new tank and immediately placing corals isn't a real good thing to do, unfortunately.

Know anyone with an established tank that could host them for you for a while?

working on finding one. How long should I wait after the whole tank is cycled before I add soft corals such as mushrooms, zoos, leathers and the such

Most people recommend 1-3 months to make sure all your water parameters are stable.
