1. Preparation for a trip
Every fish owner should remember that these creatures are very demanding. Even the slightest mistake in their maintenance can cause death, no matter what the species. Relocation to a new place puts additional pressure. The fish population can become stressed quite easily. This is why you must prepare adequately while planning the move. Decide on the best places to keep the fish. Pick the right transport, weather condition, the right time for moving, and the best conditions. You need proper documentation as well. Change the water in your aquarium several days in advance before moving the fish tank to a new house. The fish will get the time to get accustomed. The water must always be clean. This is an important thing to do. Also, decrease the amount of water by 20% every day, 5 days prior to the relocation./p>
Focus on these packing tips. Always use a different container instead of the fish tank while moving to the new location. This is usually a plastic bag that must be filled with the water from the aquarium. You can tie it with a rubber band. Leave some space for air if the fish must travel for more than one hour. You can also use a solid container with a lid. This is the right choice if your fish has sharp fins. Whether you are using a plastic bag or container, always keep it in an insulated container during the relocation to a new destination. This will preserve the temperature.
It is preferable to pour water from the aquarium into the container for transportation. Any plants or decorative items should be excluded not to damage fish on the go. One more advice is to prevent fish from sunlight as in the darkness they are not so active. Never feed them during the trip.
