 Impurities  and  contamination  because  of  the  way  welding  shop  cylinders  are  handled,  I  agree.  But  lower  concentration  or  percentage  of  O2  in  those  cylinders?  Confused

 Commercial  use  Purity  95  to  99%.  Rest  will  be  air.
 Food  usage  Purity  99.9%
 Medical  (human  respiration)  use  Purity  99.9%  with  a  some  CO2  and  nitrous  oxide  gas  added  (  laughing  gas)  for  increased  respiration  and  calming  effect.
 This  was  what  I  read  a  long  time  ago,  maybe  now  that's  all  changed.
 
 Worry  more  about  temperature,  duration  of  transport,  number  and  size  of  fish,  if  it  is  possible  to  change  water  during  the  transit,
 starving  the  fish  for  3-5  days  before  the  journey,  packaging  to  avoid  leakages  in  transit  and  not  waste  your  time  about  purity  of  oxygen  and  non  essential  stuff.
 
 If  you  change  the  oxygen  frequently,  but  carry  well  fed  fish  and  don't  change  water,  you  might  end  up  with  dead  fish.

 If  you  can  change  all  the  water  twice  in  12-15  hrs,  you  don't  need  oxygen.
 Starve  your  fish  for  a  couple  of  days  before  travel.

 You  need  to  have  a  minimum  10  big  plastic  covers  for  the  fishes  alone.
 Carry  extra  covers  for  leakage  and  safety  issues.
 Heat  should  not  be  a  concern  since  you  are  travelling  in  the  night.,  but  still  look  out.
 Try  putting  them  in  a  cardboard  box  ,  with  styrofoam  fillers   used  in  Bean  bags  for  cushioning.
 Check  out  if  any  LFS  have  O2  equipment  with  them...else  as  suggested  "Battery  Operated  Air  Pump"  should  serve  best.
 All  the  best  and  let  us  know  how  successful  you  were.  Smile

 Just  get  some  over  sized  bags,  fill  1/4  with  water  and  3/4  with  air  or  oxygen(preferred).  
 Double/triple  pack  the  fish  with  news  paper  in  between  bags  (helps  absorb  water  in  case  of  minor  leakages  and  keeps  the  second  bag  away  from  the  first).  
 Stop  feeding  the  fish  3  days  before  transit.
 Pack  all  the  bags  in  a  carton  with  news  papers  in  between.
 Board  the  bus  and  keep  your  fingers  crossed  till  you  reach.
 
 Regards,
 Humaid

 I  think  yes...  You  can  put  it  in  luggage.  
 Do  check  rules  for  it.  My  friend  transport  through  planes  only.

 Iam  not  expert  like  may  of  these  here  but  i  will  share  my  personal  experience.
 
 I  once  travelled  for  7  hours  carrying  fish  in  a  plastic  container  of  20  litre  size.
 
 I  will  not  suggest  the  plastic  bags  as  they  are  unrealiable  ....  also  you  are  traveling  in  bus  may  spill.
 Iam  not  expert  on  oxygen  but  14  hours  will  be  difficult  i  guess...  also  add  3hr  for  loacl  tranport  and  waiting.
 
 As  suggested  by  many  you  can  connect  the  battery  operated  airpump  to  the  conatiner  by  making  hole  in  the  cap.
 If  you  are  traveling  in  good  bus  there  are  charging  points  which  can  be  used.
 
 for  small  size  fish  normal  pastic  water  can  can  be  used.
 
 for  big  fishes  which  wont  fit  in  the  can  mouth  you  should  opt  for  a  cleaned  paint  conatiner.  PROPERLY  CLENAED.  or  wide  mouth  30  litre  water  conatiner.
 
 both  above  are  cheap  and  effective.
 
 Photo  below  will  help  i  guess.
 I  used  option  3

 fishes  come  from  chennai  to  mysore,  almost  like  18  hours  till  they  are  opened.  most  of  them  will  be  in  perfect  condition.  that  too  they  will  be  crowded  in  bags.
 
 Dont  worry  much.  No  problemo  dude.
