So my husband and I are moving June 18th from New York to Washington State. We plan on taking about 7 days to get home while doing some site seeing. We have one ten gallon tank and a little 2.5 gallon tank with 2 bettas and nine fish between us. We plan on going through the northern states to get to Washington, but I'm worried it'll get crazy hot in the car while we site see, if we plan on just moving the tanks in the car with us.
I'm more concerned about the two bettas than I am about the tetra and the catfish (not to mean I'm cold hearted, I love all my fish), I'm thinking about shipping them to my mothers house while we make the move and hope that the other fish make it. I like the other fish, but they aren't worth the money trying to get them cross country and I don't wanna bog my mother down with 10 fish.
Does anyone have any suggestions? My biggest concern is I don't want them to overheat or freeze during our moving process.
