Me and my cousin are trading fish and I have ???
Should I put the fish in a bag Or a container of some sort
The trip is an hour away
I'm am getting 2 Corey cats,zebra danio, and a dwarf gourami
Do you think the fish will make it and do you have tips on how to help the survive
just get one of the bags the fish shops put them in, fill it up with tank water that the fish you are getting are in to about half way. Put a couple of elastic bands round the top to stop water leaking out and they should be fine for a couple fo hours.
I recently moved a ridiculous number of fish to a place that is over an hour from where I previously was. I didn't loose a single one of my fish during the drive. What you want to do is double bag them and stick them in a cooler right before you leave. Bagging my fish took me over an hour because I had to bag 24 full grown fish plus 16 guppy fry. Fish are more resilient than you'd expect. Don't feed your fish for two days before the move and maybe add a heat pack if you live in a place with colder wether. I promise they will be fine. You can get bags and rubber bands from fish stores. Just ask and they will provide you with some for a small fee...
