I will be moving at the end of April to the west side of Michigan to live in my new home with my boyfriend. Now I have moved goldfish before, just put them in a bucket, and I have moved bettas before, but it was only a 30 min trip. I have all their cut that a cleaned out and kept so they can travel in those. I know I will need to pick up some heat packs. Do they last 3 hours? Also, would it be a good idea to take some of their water with me in jugs so I can mix it with the new water at the old house? Will I have to cycle again? I know I would like to wait at least 24hrs till I put them all back in.
Some tips would be nice! I want them all to be healthy and safe when they get to their new home.
