Hey, I would like to get some input in how to move with 2 aquariums.
We are moving almost 700 miles away and I am wondering what the best way would be to get the tanks moved. I have 2 ideas for the fish:
Idea 1: Put them in bags and then in a carton with isolation, similar to when fish stores get fish delivered. (So it would be dark)
Idea 2: Move the fish in buckets with a lid with a few holes in and a battery operated air pump.
What do you guys think?
Then, the plants also in a bucket or bags? Which way would work better.
We are taking down the tanks on a Saturday and should be able to put them back up either Sunday night or Monday morning. Would Friday be okay too to take down the tanks or would the time frame be too long?
There are following fish living in the 55 gal: 3 Angels, 3 Blackskirts, 2 Denison Barbs, 1 Betta, 10 Cory Cats, 1 King Tiger Pleco, 1 Red Lizard Whiptail Catfish, a few shrimp, 1 Hillstream Loach and a few Platies and Mollies.
In the 20 gal are Red Cherry Shrimp, 2 African Dwarf Frogs and 1 Bristlenose Pleco.
The 55 gal also has a canister filter: Should I leave the water in there? From the other tank: Transport filter media soaked in water or dry?
I know it's a lot of questions but I hope I can get this all organized so everything will move just fine
I am open to any suggestions, concerns, ideas. Of course I am trying to get everything moved alive and try to prevent big problems but I have never moved with a big tank like that.
