I'm transporting both my boys and their moss balls to New York on Tuesday. I already got some baggies to put the bettas in. However, I'm not sure how to package the moss balls for safe transport. I was thinking I would put them in the cup that they came in (I divided my ball into two), but it's a three day, two night trip.

Any ideas?

If you could get your hands on a jar thing like this:

That should be fine for the moss balls

Just get 2 fish bags that petco and stuff sell fish in. Put one bag in the other and put it in a dark box. Should be fine for 1/2 hr.

1. Hey, my marble half-moon is SO aggressive!!! He has been ever scene I put him in a 3 gallon upgrade (from a 2 gal.) two or three weeks ago. He flares at me and everything when I see him and he bites it lovely tail T3T. He made his first bubble nest (When I had him) a week or so ago, but hasn't made another one... Is he just crazy and what should I do? X3

2. Also, I put different color toys i there, he loves to chase the yellow, kills red and runs from orange and green! lol why?

3. AND dose light bother him? I have a BIG light above his tank I turn on to look at him and take pictures. It makes a little heat but I don't need it.

4. Its putting a snack on a string, making him chase it, and then letting him (VERY CRAZY-LIKE) eating it off a good idea? It was really cute >.<
