How to hold and transport a fish overnight?

I'm getting a dwarf puffer for a 5g tank at my work. Thing is, I'll need to get it from my LFS after work so I won't be able to get it to the tank until the following morning. I obviously can't stay in the bag and it's too aggressive to house with my other fish in my large tank overnight. What's the best way to keep him overnight and then transport him?

If you're sure it's just overnight, you could get a 5gal bucket with some seeded media and some sort of hiding spot. So you're going from work to the lfs then home right? And also make sure to treat the water and aerate!

Get a bubbler and put it in a 5 gallon bucket with the fish.

If you have a breeder net or box that can hang in your big tank you could put it in there...and then to transport it you can put it in bag or bucket...that is what I would do
