best way to travel???

I am picking up two clownfish from an AA member this weekend (YAY!). What are your suggestions on how to transport them for an hour and half drive?? Will bagging them up be enough? or should I try to hook up a bubbler to oxengate the water?

I am also getting some liverock from the same guy. Should the liverock be covered with water? or will wet newspaper do?

Thanks a bunch.



Did I mention that I'm getting TWO clownfish?!?!?!?

For the rock, you're better off putting it in water. No dieoff that way.

the clowns should have no problem being in a bag for an hour and a half. Think about the fish that are shipped to petstores. They're in the bags for at least a few hours. Most likely they are packed with Oxygen though.

I'd also think that the oxygen re-fresh at the LFS when they package it for you should do you just fine for the trip.
