Exclamation Im back! - Moving Help!

Hey, Im back!
I have no clue if anyone I still know is on here.
Last time I came on was about half a year ago D8
Well,
Pickle and Nenet are doing just fine,
But I am moving Tommorow,
and I dont have anything for them set up at all.
I need help from you guys ;n;
I put them back into their bowls for the time being,
Theyll go back into the [divided] tank when we get settled in.
I need help asap please,

We are packing already and I doubt I have little time to
scavenge containers for them.
Its cooler here,
and Its about a 3-4+ hour ride to where I am going (Lower mainland to the upper Island)
So I desperately need advice,
becuase my parents are insisting they'd be fine in their bowls D8
(Pickles has no top,
though he doesnt jump as much as Nenet)

ARG.
I need help desperately.
Im pretty sure I have up to late afternoon tommorow.
Please post suggestions.
Each is appreciated very much

I'm not an expert but maybe Tupperware with air holes cut through the tops? Not sure how you're moving if by car or moving truck but maybe hold them while driving? or put them in an open box with something around them so the bowls can't move around. Hope that can help.

Do you have any tupperware? The bowls they came in? For a four hour trip, it might be best if they're in small, tight, and dark containers to make them feel more secure. Make sure they have access to oxygen, though, since we don't want your buddies to die of lack of air. If it's hot, try to keep them a bit cooler, and if it's chilly, try to keep them warmer. A little bit of effort will have to be made, but bettas can survive being shipped across oceans, so they should be fine with a little TLC.
When they're waiting for their tank to be set up when you arrive at your house, I think a bowl would be fine, provided you give them the correct amount of water changes. To cover the top of my bowl, I simply put a piece of paper with an old CD on top, leaving some space for air flow. I know most of the time heaters are definitely advocated, but I think they'd be fine for a little bit without one. It IS summer, after all.

Have I helped at all? Or did I completely miss the issue?
xD

WELCOME BACK. Glad to see Pickle and Nenet are doing okay (: Didn't you just move, though???
