I put them in the center console/armrest thing, so they don't roll around.. I guess that's fish seat..

Well I voted "Hold them in your hand" but I am a passenger so basically I'm sitting in the backseat holding the bags on my lap while my Dad's driving.

Our local fish store isn't local it's 350 miles away literally. We live in Missouri. The only fish store we have in our town is petco and it's crazy there! They don't have any equipment for over 5 gallons they have like 200 fish stuffed in their tanks and most of them are dead or disease written! The first time I bought their I bought a tiger barb and it was half dead when I bought it. I took it back to the store to return it and he tested the water with the strips and said the water quality wasn't good enough! I tested it at home it was fine. Plus petco is really expensive. They don't have any plants. The only fish I buy there is bettas. And they're high so I usually don't buy them there. For me it's cheaper to drive and buy a mini heater and mini tank then buy from them!

I use a lrg shoe box. It's large enough to put three bags upright or two bags laying down. On the back seat out of the sun light and I drive carefully.

Yeah that's a good idea to keep the bags stable and provides a darker background so the fish aren't as scared.
I think I'm gonna try that tomorrow when I get my fish

what I do is I have a paper bag (brown) and set the bag that holds the fish it it. Then i put it in the square Ice cream buckets. This way, the fish gets less stressed. I did this for my male betta who I love so dearly.

thats him. In his old betta condo, now he has a 20 gal with guppies and swordtails and corydoras. =] Though I don't have any more guppies or anything... Maybe its me, but my guppies don't breed like crazy. I have 2 females and want 2 more.

if you have someone else in the car or have a free hand it can't hurt to hold it so why not?

I put mine in either a zip-up cooler bag in the front seat or I have them in a box with random items i find in the car and stuff that between the bags so they don't roll, then I place them on the front seat and buckle them up lol
