Hi. I have a gorgeous blue veil tail and his name is porcupine. I'm going off to college this fall and I am bringing him with me because 1) i would miss him terribly if I left him and 2) my family would never remember to feed him. :/ My school is only 30 or so minutes away from my house but I'm worried about the move. Are there any suggestions on how I can move him while inflicting the least stress on him? Should I leave him in the tank or put him in a cup or bag or what?
Also, Porcupine is living in a 1.5 gal tank (I know... I wish I could give him more but i don't have the space! but he is doing really well, so its ok.) the tank came with an air stone and air pump which has been nice and keeping the water oxygenated and not stagnant like in a bowl. but the other day i found a nice little filter made for 1-3 gal tanks. Its called a whisper filter i believe (made by tetracare, i think?) and I was wondering if this filter would do the same job as my air pump (oxygenate and such) in addition to filtration and so I should just use this instead of the air pump or if I would need both?
Porcupine and I thank you! :)
