I have two comets that have been in a 55 gallon tank for six years. They are in my office and since COVID-19 I’ve been driving down there on weekends for maintenance. They do not seem happy and I worry about some thing going wrong. We’ve been told that we’re not going back to work until there’s a vaccine so I’ve decided to bring them home. A few years ago they had babies so I put together a 350 gallon “pond” in my backyard with tons of filtration and air. They seem really happy and actually had babies themselves. I’m very worried about moving the older fish in there. I’m worried about them getting stressed out. I’m worried about it being a completely different environment and I’m also worried because one of them is pretty much blind. I am looking for tips on how to make the transition as healthy for them as possible. It is going to be much warmer outside than what they’re used to in the office.How much time should I take to ease them into it and how should I do it?
I will be moving out of my parents house in a few weeks for university to somewhere roughly a 6 hour drive away. I have two goldfish and I’m wondering if it would be safe to take them with me on such a long journey and how I might go about it. It’s possible for me to leave them with my parents as they are willing to take care of them and i’ll be back every few months for holidays but i’d much rather take them with me if possible. How would I go about transporting my fish (one about 6cm /10 including tail the other a few cm smaller) on such a long journey??
I've just accepted a job offer (yay!) in a town about an hour out of London, so we will be moving out there in the next 8 weeks. Having never moved house with fish before, I was wondering what the best way of transporting them would be. It's only an hour drive, but add on any faffing at either end and realistically we're looking at the fish being out of their tank for 2-3 hours. Are Kordon Breathing Bags the best option on the market? Would it be best to transport them in these bags in a polystyrene box with a lid (which is how I collected several of my fish)? Advice from anyone who has experienced moving with fish would be most welcome
Hey guys So as some of you know, I am coming to the end of Mochi the oranda's quarantine period... He has done extremely well and today we've completed his 2nd round of prazi! (I am hoping to do rounds 3 and 4 of prazi in his 20 gallon long)... I was wondering if you all had any tips/steps for transferring a fish from one tank to another? If I have both water temperatures at the same temperature, can I just move him straight out and in? Thanks in advance for the tips !
