Best way to transport aquatic life on a long car ride
At the end of the year I'm moving from northern California to phoenix and I'm driving there. I need to bring about 10 fish and over a dozen amano shrimp with me. I also have a tankfull of live plants. Its an 18 hour drive and I will probably stop and sleep half way. What's the best way to ensure their safe arrival.
My initial plan was to buy a couple 5 gallon buckets. I would fill one with tank water and float the plants in it and seal the top. Then I would buy some breather bags for the fish and shrimp and put them in the other bucket and leave it open top... and occasionally rotate the bags around for better air flow.
Someone also said I could put them in a bucket of water and use a battery powered air pump with it.
What would you suggest?
