Any moving advice?
I will be moving across town into a new apartment, and I have taken a week off to do this.
Part of this is moving a small 10 gallon tank, though. I have never moved with fish before!
I'm looking for any advice on how to move my tanks occupants (3 harlequin rasboras, 4 neon tetras, 2 ADFs, and a nerite snail) and the plants (Too many water wisteria, a handful of amazon swords, two java ferns attached to a piece of driftwood, and an anubias).
My plan was moving the majority of my furniture first and find them a home, and than coming back for the buggers.
I have a five gallon bucket I intend to fill with their tank water, and than move the plants, fish and frogs in there and throw a lid on it, and than drain as much water from the tank as possible to lessen the weight and than move it over to the apartment (no more than a two minute drive at most). Once I have it set back up again, I'd replant the tank, and get the water back into the tank with the occupants, and than top off with bottled water, seeing as I don't know what the water quality is there yet.
It seems to me to be sound reasoning, however, should I stop feeding the little buggers a day before? Water changes? Any and all advice will be welcomed!
Thanks in advance.

Reason: Draining water from where?! The tank.
