Best way to transport fish

Tomorrow I am moving and I need to transport my fish and tank and its a 4 hour drive. I plan to use 5 gallon buckets 3/4 of the way filled with water and I have 2 battery air pumps. I am not sure what fish I should have together in a bucket. My stocking is 2 angels, 1 bala, 3 denisons barbs, 2 bristlenose Plecos, 1 clown Pleco, 1 pictus and 2 striped Raphael catfish.

Thanks for any advice

I think you should be okay just splitting them up any way you choose.

Just go to you local fish store and ask them for one or two poly boxes depending on how many fish you have

Job done

CanadianTire bucket

I did it with a 6 gallon CanadianTire bocket with a cap. It worked pretty well ! And cost about 10$. Now I'm using it for other things.

Thanks for the advice. I'm thinking the best way to split them up is 2 angels together in one bucket 3 denisons and the bala in another and probably Plecos in one with the other 3 in the last bucket
