My two fish tanks and I are heading to Baltimore from Pittsburgh at the end of the month and I have some questions. First I'll let you in on the plan so far then anyy suggestions you have would be great. Get up at 4am and take down 30 gallon FOWLR
save about 15-20 gallons of that water in blue wal mart tote. put fish in with heater poke holes in top. Put Lr
in with some water in another tote. As for reef 55 gallon put all shrimps and tangs (and heater?)in tote and thenn put everyone else who is kinda small like the gromis and gobies in bags. All coral and LR
with as much water as I can get in another tote to keep everything covered can't have this stuff re cycling on me. transport early to avoid boiling fish and coral in AC
and put all the water and stuff in the back of the truck. Hopefully on the road by 7am. get there get set up before heat of the day. Questions.... how do I keep all the algea and coraline and stuff on the back of my tanks from dying during the 4 hour drive? If it all dies and I put everyone back in tanks it is gonna be a mess with nitrates and death of epic proportions. also Is there any thing else I should know or is this kinda like just doing a big 50% water change upon arriving and getting them back up to speed? Does anyone see any holes in my plan??
Thanks for your help I would hate to lose anyone.
