I have returned to these forums after my 4 month break, and have also moved to western australia, which means that i have no options to ordering fish online because it is illegal to bring aquatic fish into WA unless you're a LFS or have a permit.
in new years i am going to perth (14 hr drive) and i have reset up my tank (2.5 gal) so its ready to go, just add fish and plants. when i am in perth i am going to buy plants and probably a nice betta. My question is should i just get him bagged up with nice water, lots of air and follow the shipping guidelines in this thread (http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=35196
) but it is averaging around 35* C and it is really hot, it'll be cooler in perth so il'l probably use a cool pack thing and use a temperature probe with seperate display.
how would i bring the plants back with me? like how would i bag them?
to give you an idea i will be bringing back Dwarf hairgrass, java fern, anubias and maybe some crypt...
sadly when i left i had to take noname the betta and all my plants back to the LFS and was left with gravel, aquariums and some chemicals.
i hope to restore my tank to its former glory, please share your ideas
this is how my tank was (i made a blog on it) the picture is old and i also had hairgrass and a divider so it looked loke a garden bed.
