How do you care for your fish on the way home from the store..
I usually hold them by the top of the bag all the way home so they don't get to feel all the bumps in the road.... :)

i voted "toss them in the back seat"... i dont literally toss them, but i just set them either on the passenger side or back seat and hook the bag theyre in on something like a door handle so they dont roll around.

I pretty much put them in the backseat on the floor and put something next to them so they don't roll around. I put them on the seat once and i was with my grandmotheer. She thought she saw something out of the corner of her eye and slammed on the breaks. My fish went flying and hit the front seats and hit the floor. That was my last time putting them on the seat.

I spent 20 bucks on this fish, He better get home safely! (I hold the bag)

If I know I am going to be bringing fish home, I take a small empty ice cream bucket with me and put it on the passenger side seat. Then I put the bag in that to be sure they don't roll around. If I buy on impulse, I put the bag in one of those cloth shopping bags because it stays upright and is dark inside the bag.

Since I have to drive them 100 miles to get home, I bring a blanket with me and wrap them up in the back seat, and stick something in front of them so they won't go flying if I have to slam on my brakes for deer/turkeys.
With the bettas, I get a washcloth or something to wrap around them, and then put them in the cup holders.

They ride beside me in the next seat.

Body heat, little bit of light....perfect!

I am 1.5 miles from home :D I put them on the front seat, with usualy my Ipod in front of it

I have an old car seat that I use. I make sure the fish is properly belted, then cover it with a blanket.
