Put them in a few cups or tupperware containers until your tank is ready. Or get some instant cycle stuff

I would just say keep them in the bought containers and do daily water changes if you don't have the room to put them in. Not much you can really do.

okay I put the survivers in cups but both of them have some pretty nasty battle scars on their fins any reccomendations on medication? ( sorry if spelled wrong). and is it somthing I should worry about if one wont leave the surface, I mean shes not belly up or side ways, she just kinda sits there and doesn't move much.

Stress coat is not a medication, it is tap water conditioner. -.-

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

It helps with healing. There isn't any need to buy medicine for that
