But this time it would have sand and plants I was worried it would all get mushed up and have to be completely re done. I would have help getting it into the car and most likely help getting it out of the car. We currently only have one fish a betta I would probably hold off on getting him any tank mates tell after the move.
Plants do make it tough. Even with just a bit of water in the tank the sloshing around can uproot stuff. I moved my 20L just across the room with maybe 15-20% water left and when I refilled it, most of my hairgrass has been ripped up as well as my Ludwigia. So if you're going to move with plants, I recommend draining it completely, and just misting every hour probably until it's full
