Default Re: Moving Tank (from state to state) need help.

I have had success using a styrofoam box to hold the fish, so the water temperature wouldn't fluctuate so much. I got the box at a big grocery store, sold as a cooler. I always restart the tank from bare tank on up when I do this. There should be no cycling problem if you have kept the plants wet, so the bacteria on them remains alive. And, reusing the filter uncleaned is also a good idea.
