Basically, my tanks started leaking last night. Bit of a mess really. So today ive emptied and siliconed it back up. Leaving my beloved fish in 2 builders buckets (which I use only.) Both have a filter stuck to the side lol, but I just wodnered if the fish are going to last in buckets

They should be fine with your filtering....continue water changes but daily, til they are back in the tank. If it's only going to be a couple of days don't feed them at all or only a tiny bit.

you may want to cover the tops of the buckets to avoid jumpers - maybe some sort of mesh?

I'm assuming the buckets are heated, but since it wasn't mentioned, I figured I should point it out.
