I was mostly meaning if having the veggies would sufficiently calm them so they wouldn't stress to death. I know the species is very fragile in a lot of respects, but if there are measures that I can take to allow them to be a part of my mobile community, I'd be willing to do a little more to make sure they were comfortable.

If it were me, I would just try to pack them so they weren't sloshed around a lot, preferably in the dark, and then when putting them in their tank, I'd keep the aquarium light off for a day. There has to be someone on here experienced with Otos that could give you a better answer...sorry

I moved from Nashville Tenn to Asheville NC with a male Betta, 3 Cory cats, 3 fancy tail Guppys, and 4 Glofish. I put them and my tank water in a cooler, you know the big ones you see construction crews with and they were all fine. It was a 5 hour drive I did put a small air stone in there and plugged the pump up to the lighter with one of those converter things. I also kept my filter media in tank water in a tuppaware container so as not to loose the good bacteria.

Kindest Regards,

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.

All right, that sounds good too. I'm getting really excited about this! I asked my mom if this can be my main Christmas present, and I said yes! I can't wait to go home for winter break now! :D Thank you all so much for all of the helpful advice. Keep it coming - if one method doesn't work too well, I'll be anxious to try others.

Oh yeah, and is it advisable to transport a tank with all of its gravel still in it? I thought that damaged the silicone seals.

I moved mine with the gravel and just enough water to cover the gravel so I would still have the bacteria there and did not have any problems its a 10 gallon to.

Wow! Congratulations on your upcoming tank!
I'm in the same exact situation as you, except I've already had my 10 gallon up and running for around 3 weeks now. Transportation was a big issue for me since it's an 8 hour drive back home. Perhaps we can discuss this matter some more as time wears on haha. Again, congrats! I'm really excited for your tank as well :D

I started a similar thread that you can find here

Must upgrade! @~@;;
