Long distance fish move  | by Johnson Hull

Long distance fish move

In the upcoming year I will be moving my fish accross the country from southern california to South carolina. Any advice would be greatly appreciated 😟

Wow, that's quite an ambitious project, good luck :-) I have once moved my tanks over a short distance of only two hours. You cannot move both the fish and the tanks at the same time. I was lucky that I had a spare tank that I used as a temporary tank while the main tank was moving. My brother in law had once kept his Malawis in the bath tube for about two weeks when he moved. That worked very well (but short travel only, too). There are plenty of people who mail order fish from stores/people far away. I would follow their recommendation for packaging fish for mail orders, it's probably the same. Best of luck!
