How to best transport tank
Hey all, I'm moving my tank and am looking for tips on how to safely and efficiently transport everything.
It's a 5.5gal with ~20 RCS inhabitants. We'll be going down 3 flights of stairs, on an 8-minute car ride, and up 2 flights.
I don't know if it would be better to drain the tank about halfway, move it, and then fill with new (aged for a day) water, or do the same but fill it with the tank water I remove. All I have is a 2-3 gallon bucket. If I did the latter, it would also require transporting a full bucket. With the former, I'm afraid of shocking the shrimp.
The HOB filter will be put in a plastic bag for the short duration of the move, and I'm also wanting to cover the tank with saran wrap so there's no risk of the shrimp freaking out and jumping.
Any advice? Thanks.
