In about two weeks i am planing on moving to a city that is 7 hours away from where i currently live. I have three bettas that i am taking with me and i'm really really worried about how they will handle the trip. I have their original containers they came in so i was thinking i might put them each in their own - obviously- and then put the containers in a box. then i was going to wrap a towel, (or two), around the containers so they're in there snugly that way the bettas won't see each other nor will the containers move around too much or tip. the only things i was wondering about were:
- should i cover them up completely on top as well? they have never been exposed to the outside sun's rays so they prefer it a little more dim. Will the sun's rays hurt them if they are exposed for a long amount of time?
- will they be stressed out by the water conditions in the new city? i know the elements in water can't be the same everywhere but is there enough of a change to stress out a betta?
any comments, answers or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! thanks!
