Best way to move fish? Help?

I'm moving.

A friend is driving down with my belongings. I am flying down.

In order for this to work, I need to have my fish tank disassembled by Thursday at noon. My friend will drive down Friday with my fish and the aquarium will be up by Friday at 5PM.

My fish are: two neon tetra, a molly, a pladdy, dwarf frog, betta fish, pleco.

I don't know how to handle this. Can I place them in a plastic bag for a day and a half? The betta, sure, but the other ones? What about heating, etc

Great article. Nice find, Ku.

Here's a little tip. Leave enough water in the tank to cover your plants, substrate and filter media. Then cover the water surface with cling film and put a towel on top of that. Keeps the sloshing to a minimum. Put the tank on a hard level surface if possible.

All those bagged fish should go into a styrofoam cooler with a towel on top and around them for insulation and to keep them from rolling around. Put a thermometer in there to keep an eye on the temperature.
