...or am I just insane?
I've decided that I would really really like to have a betta friend at college with me. I've already checked into the rules and things -- tropical fish are permitted in dorm rooms. I'm quite confident that I can take good care of this betta, but there's only one major setback. I'll have to bring my betta buddy home during breaks and bring him back when school resumes.
After thinking about it, I came up with a plan of attack, but I want y'all to tell me whether I'm being crazy or not. I thought that I might be able to skim off about 2 gallons of the 5 gallon tank I'm thinking of getting, unplug and neatly wrap the aquarium, put it back in the box it came in with betta and all still inside, and transport him that way. The drive is approximately two hours, so he'd spend a maximum of 3 hours without filtration and probably with a slowly cooling water temp. Once we got home, I'd be sure not to waste time plugging him back up and replacing the 2 gallons.
So... does that sound like it would be at all possible to you?
