We are looking at following this method: Moving Your Tropical Fish, Goldfish, and Aquarium.
Does anyone have advice to help with this process? I am thinking we will need a tank setup at the new house ready when we arrive, since the fish's actual tanks won't be there yet... I know this is small but would a 36 gallon tank suffice for a week tops? (These fish are spread between a 55, 29,10, and 5 gallon tanks currently). Should the 36 have gravel in it? (It would be new gravel...) But the travel buckets will have decor and floating plants to hide in during the trip. Nights at the hotel we would put in an airstone and heater overnight...
For buckets, should large fish go in one and small in another? or mix? How many buckets with this many fish?
Any and all advice is much appreciated! Thank you in advance!
Wow, wow, does that sound like a feat to do that move! So many people find it "to difficult" to move with a dog - wow, they should read what you're going to attempt. I have no clue how to help, I'm sure someone will. I wish you and the fish the best of luck on this move.
