So in a couple weeks, my betta is going to live with my parents while I go on vacation. I was wondering if anyone has experience moving their bettas, and any general advice you have to make it successful?
Including dismantling the tank, driving, and setting it back up he will probably be in his cup about 2.5 hours. The water will be quite different. It doesn't have chlorine, and I imagine the hardness and pH will be considerably different too. Should I continue using the same amount of conditioner even though there won't be any chlorine to remove? Also, will this disrupt the cycle or start it over? I've been able to stretch out my water changes so I think the tank is close to stable right now.
On a side note, does anyone have good websites you like to buy betta-friendly silk plants from? I'd like to get him some new decorations to keep the tank interesting while I'm away. It's just plastic, plastic, plastic in my town.
I've finally gotten him really healthy after a couple weeks of on-off sickness (and lots of trial and error as I figured out how to be a better betta owner). I hope this big move isn't too stressful for him. :(
