I am in a panic about an upcoming move. I have a 40 gal breeder tank with tetras, 1 remaining molly, and a 2 1/2 year old angelfish. The tank has a dirt substrate with gravel on top, and 2 primary plantings: a grass like plant about 3 inches tall covering about 1/3 of the tank, and 4 tall plants with mostly exposed roots and large-ish leaves (wish I knew the names of these gifted plants). I will be moving about 70 miles away, but the tank stand (a large cabinet) will have to move on a Tuesday and won't be available again until Thursday. How can I keep the fish alive, the plants happy, etc.?
I could set up the tank in another location, only to then move it again. If that would be better for the fish, let me know. If so, how long should I wait before moving the tank to its final destination?
