Thank goodness

finally got my full leg cast off! Except it's replaced by a half leg cast! Eh, still better. I'm going a little crazy though. It's already been 6 weeks and it's going to be like 4-5 more plus physical therapy! Bleh.

Anyways, next Saturday, the 24th is my cousin's birthday party and that is when I plan on giving him the beloved Fish. My cousin was actually just here for a week and out of all my bettas, Fish was his favorite. :D I didn't tell him that it's his birthday present.

What would I need to do to travel with Fish? It will be a 2 hour car ride and like 12 degrees outside, although nice and toasty in the car. I'm thinking about his tank, like what to do with water and all that, keep it, just do a 100% water change when I get there? It's an Eclipse 3 gallon. And what would I put him in that would be easiest, tupperware, cup that I bought him in? Would I need to fast him before the trip?

Any tips, recommendations, complaints, comments, free bettas are welcome?
:)

This is how one girl travels with her on the forum when she is going to and from college (during winter break and such): http://www.bettafish.com/showthread....raveling+betta

I know you can get the heat packs to put with the betta to keep them warm, and put them in a insulated cooler lunchbox thing. These two methods would be the easiest I think.

Oh the wise TianTian! That's perfect. Thanks dr2b!

Would hand warmers work? I don't think they would get too hot if I wrapped them in a towel and put them under a wrapped container. Yay? Nay?

I'm glad to hear that your full cast is off. I think handwarmers will be fine, like dr2b said.
