I'm going to link you to a blog I read this morning by Chris and Patty Clark of Metro Brokers, Morningside Homes of Denver, Colorado titled: "Moving with Tropical Fish - How to Keep Them Calm"
As I'm preparing homes in Houston to go onto the market I see many, many aquariums and always pause for a minute and admire the tropical fish, but honestly... I never thought about how to pack them up and move them.
The Clarks describe how to go about this ... how to choose a transport container ... what water to use ... what the temperature of the water should be ... its all here and exceedingly helpful, so your fish don't get stressed out ... and EVERYBODY arrives joyfully in their new home.
Who knew? Not me! I appreciate the tips and am passing them on.
