They seemed to have all survived the 400 mile,8 hour trip. I am working on uploading a video I took as well.

You're welcome. They will also be better for the "plants" in there; I realize they are plastic but having something like this in a QT is good particularly for fish that without such "security" would be very stressed out. That's mainly why I think they will adapt fine.
