 Hello  all,  Posting  after  a  long  time.  I  am  moving  from  Pune  by  this  month  end.  Planning  to  shift  my  3feet  aquarium  by  Packers  and  Movers  and  carry  all  the  fishes  along  with  me  in  my  car.  Moving  to  Gwalior.  I  will  take  my  fishes  in  my  ice  box  (without  the  ice  of  course  Smile).  Now  the  journey  is  going  to  take  me  2  days  as  I'll  not  drive  at  a  stretch.  The  fishes  are  too  many  like  4  bala  sharks  4  inches  each.  2  dollars  3-4  inches  each  and  30  odd  1-2  inch  types  (guppies,  neons  and  the  likes).
 
 Will  they  survive  in  like  15-20  liters  water  without  aeration  for  2  days?  What  other  method  would  you  recommend  to  move  my  fishes?
 
 Rgds,  Prakash

 No  they  wont  survive  this  long  journey.For  aeration  you  could  buy  a  battery  operated  air  pump  and  make  sure  that  you  have  spare  batteries  as  well.But  if  you  provide  the  aeration  still  they  wont  make  it  as  becoz  of  so  little  water  and  lots  of  fishes  which  could  lead  to  Ammonia  spike.

 IMO  you  can  search  for  temporary  housing  for  your  fishes  in  Pune  until  you  re-setup  your  tanks  at  new  place.
 Once  done,  you  can  arrange  for  shipping  of  your  fishes  by  flight  so  that  they  end  up  directly  to  your  settled  tanks  after  being  landed  at  Gwalior.

 (1)  Get  beeeeeg  pearl  pet  jars  (  5  litres  to  keep  the  30  odd  smaller  fishes)
 (2)  Get  another  beeeeeg  pearl  pet  jar  to  keep  the  rest
 (3)  1  battery  operated  air  pump....rotate  between  jars  every  2-3  hrs
 (4)  make  sure  the  lid  is  perforated  or  covered  by  cloth  so  that  some  oxygen  does  come   in
 (5)  change  water   (50%)  every  day  for  each  jar
 (6)  Do  not  feed  during  the  journey
 (7)  and  try  and  keep  the  temp  below  30  degrees  (may  be  use  the  car  AC  effectively)
 (Cool  Pray  Chuckle   Chuckle  
 
 It  should  work....
 
 Did  something  like  this,  5/6  years  back  in  a  36  hours  train  journey  (without  the  air  pump  ofcourse)  with  no  significant  mortality!
