Going to NC -__-

So every year my family takes a road trip to North Carolina (that being said, we drive up). It takes us about a day to go up there. I have noone at home to feed my betta. What do i do? Do I bring her?

Well if you can't find anybody to take care of her it looks like she's going with you.

For the drive up, should I have her in a critter-creeper type thing and then set up her tank when we get there?

To be honest, she can probably go the two weeks fine- its more of an issue of water quality after that time.

NO. Dont use that, trust me. You will get SOAKED.

Put her in her cup or into a sandwich bag. That way, shes not getting knocked around in the water too much. She really wont be swimming around, anyway.

The day before your trip, do a small water change- 25% but not more than 50%... Then use that water in her bag. Dont feed her the night before or that day.

Keep her wrapped in a dark shirt or something to keep her calm, and keep her on your lap for warmth and stability.

If the cup has holes on the top, cover them- trust me, too much water will escape! Open the lid every once and a while for new, nice air.

Ive done this a billion times...I travel all year back and forth from college- 6 hours away, usually every month or so (boooo)... My fish fare well this way.
