A different location of the house, I mean. Now that I have a 5 gallon aquarium for my little guy, I would love to move him into the basement because I spend far more time down here than upstairs, (it's where the TV and computer are
) I can give him a lot more attention that way. The reason I didn't put him down here from the start is because I wasn't sure if he would like it since it's darker and colder in the basement than upstairs. But now that I have a bigger tank which is covered, and a better heater, and a light, I was thinking he would be ok. But I'm scared he's going to get stressed from the move, especially since he's been in that 2 gallon bowl upstairs for over a year. So it will be a new tank and a new environment at once, I'm just worried he will get super stressed. I actually have no choice but to move him down here with the 5 gallon because there is no room upstairs for that size of tank.
I'm also concerned about the TV stressing him out. He'll be over 6 feet away from both the TV and computer. Will this be ok?
I'm testing out the heater in his new tank now, so I haven't moved him in it yet, and won't for a couple of more days to make sure everything is ready and working. Should I maybe start bringing him down here for those next couple of days in his bowl so he can get accustomed to the new place before I put him in his big tank? I would only have him down here for a while during the day, then I could bring him back upstairs to his normal place. Is this a good idea?
