Ok! so the move for me at least was stressful! But I also think it was a stress on the fish. Speedbump the Betta pretty much (to me at least) only seemed the most stressed out when moving him into his little transport jar. The Cory cats and tetra were definitely stressed throughout the whole process. The snail, and the Cories and tetras were all in another jar together and the frog was in a separate jar by himself. I tried to put the jars in a bucket and put one of their bottles of h2o (I couldn't take a lot of their water but I was able to get a few jugs of it) against them so they wouldn't move in the car, but when the car started to move they were moving around so i started grabbing stuff in hands reach that I could stuff around them. Then, when I finally got them there and started to set up the tank I couldn't find my dechlorinator cus I didn't have enough h2o so I decided to let te tank with water in in sit overnight and then the next day I'd add the fish. I was really worried someone might not make it overnight, but they all did!! and they are now in the tank happy and swimming around. But the filter has been giving me problems. it won't run the water. and I can't figure out what's wrong :(

So for now (especially since the water is cloudy) I am just going to do h2o changes more often than I normally would till I can figure out this frustrating filter.

and I decided that my frog is going to go back into the 20 Long since I don't have the space for the 10g (especially if there is only one frog living in it) where I put my other tank.

So far, everyone is doing okay! If they are still fine by now I think they will be ok.

Unfortunately, the first, and HOPEFULLY last casualty of this move was John, the frog. I feel that if he didn't go through the move and go in the tank with the others he might have survived for a lot longer. :(
