Ok, I start spring break this week, and I am planning to take my tank and fish etc... home for the rest of the year.
it is a 60 mile or so trip from here to "home" -- so my plan is this, I have two 5 gallon buckets and I am pondering a 10 gallon bucket to carry water in. to start the tank when I get home.
ok, so my initial plan is this: put the liverock in on5 gallon bucket (with water of course from the tank)
fill up another 5 gallon bucket with water from the tank to put my clownfish in and my snails in with an airstone
and finally if I do plan to buy a 10 gallon bucket or so (if one exists, I have a 18 gallon tupperware container I keep water in, but the lid is shady and I don't trust it in my car) it will be filled with sw
so here are some other questions... how am I going to do this with my livesand in my tank ? should I leave a little water in the tank with the livesand to keep the worms / watever else alive in it, like maybe a half gallon or so of water ?
