Transporting fish

Okay, so the store will take back my aggressive Pearl Gourami. What's the easiest way to safely transport the fish an hour's distance.

Put in in a plastic bag, perhaps a large ziplock bag. Place this bag into a box to prevent it from tipping over. That should work just fine.

You can put some O2 in the bag before you tie it and put a hot water bottle next to it with some warm water if you're worried.

Okay, thanks for the last minute advice. I'm off to return the supposedly peaceful Pearl Gourami.
