Makin' a move

Hey guys,

As Christmas break approaches for the college kids around here, so approaches the time to pack up your dorm room tank and take it home. I have my 10g(max size) GBR tank with me in my room. I'll be taking it home this weekend. Plan on putting my filter media in a bag of tank water to keep it moist. The tank will get dropped down to about a gallon of water for the move. And the pair of gbr's will be bagged up for safety.

Anyone else moving a tank back home for the holiday break?


-Mike

Not for the holiday's, but I just moved. a 29g planted GBR tank, 20g planted shrimp tank, 46g community tank, and 2.5g planted. Moving = not tons of fun.

For the record, Rummynose tetras in a 46g tank are extremely difficult to catch.

I didn't even try with the shrimp. I left them an inch of water to transport in the tank. Luckily I was only moving 10 miles up the road.

Thankfully I'm living at home while attending college, so my tanks are all already with me.

Best of luck with the move!
