Moving 4.5 hours away
So I have to move about 300 miles shortly, and I need to break down my planted 29g tank. I've moved it before, but only across town so it was much simpler. I'm hoping to move my drift wood into a rubbermaid tub with some of the tank water to keep it wet, and I'm planning on bringing about half the water along. I'm going to keep a tiny amount of water in the tank, and place it on some wood so I can carry it, and keep all the plants wet for the trip.
My question is what to do with all the fish. Should I put them in a rubbermaid with 5 or so gallons as well, or would I need to separate them into smaller bags? I have an aerator to use during the move if I can keep them all together. I mostly have tetras, with some cories and a kribensis.
Do any of you have some suggestions to give them the best chance of making the trip safely?
