Recommended Posts

Ok dunno if this is the right place or not.... 8O

We are moving From gladstone back down to bundy about a 2 hours trip.. whats the best way to move the fish and tanks... We are going to do it ourselfs (moving)

If it was me I would Just bucket them

Probably about 4 hours all up by the time you catch them and setthe tank up other end

Should be fine

I would invest in a battery airpump to help them out though

Dont feed a few days before you go so there isnt an ammonia problem

As an added extra a small amount of prime in the water will also help with ammonia problems

when i moved my fish room, i used 2 44 gal drums with air pumps in each one and put all fish together that where capable for the trip being in the dark they are kept calm. i transport the more delecit in bags double wrap and with oxygen and they were fine for a 1 1/2 trip.

I'd just use buckets and have a towel laying over them. Thats all i use if their only traveling between 1-2 hours. Or you could go to a fishing tackle supply shop and get some battery operated air pumps if your worryed. I bought 3 of them a few weeks ago at saltys in Bundy for $9.50 each. I used them when i picked up some fish from smiley and had to travel 4-5 hours. cheers mick
