Thanks to you all, very helpful. I'm going to have to do this all again next month when we move, but still, free established tank.
Do be aware that fishes will be fine in bucket's with airstone for perhaps an hour or two tops.After that,, ammonia produced by all fishes asumming they are breathing, could begin to rise to toxic levels.
Pays to make such moves as quickly as possible.
If fishes are going to be in bucket's for much longer,then either adding some of the saved ,wet,filter material to the bucket's or changing out some water for fresh dechlorinated water would in my view be necessary in bucket(s) holding fish.
