My NPT is at my parents' house, and I'm now away at college and I really want my fishy! Especially because Sky is tailbiting, and it's because my parents just feed him and don't play with him or anything. D:
Has anyone ever moved a NPT? All of the plants have good root systems - they've been in there for at least 6 months.
Obviously I'm taking Sky out, I've moved a betta and non-NPT multiple times, so I'm good on betta-moving. I just want to make sure the NPT isn't completely destroyed after I move it. D:
Has anyone had any luck with this/have any tricks?
My plan thus far:
Drain water as close to substrate as I can get it (obviously remove filter and heater and pack separately), put tank in Sterilite box packed with towels, transport. (Note: It's a ten gallon tank)
I guess the worst that can happen is I have to break it down, put new soil, and replant plants, right? I spent too much on plants for them to die D:
EDIT: Oh! Also, it's a 1.75-2 hour interstate drive.
My MAIN concern, is the change in water for the plants. The water at my parents' house is soft, whereas the water here is quite a bit harder.
