Thanks. :D
we're hoping to be able to be completely moved by the end of July. We're moving to Hallstead, Pa. I'm a little concerned about transporting my red bellies b/c they seem to stress so easily. I was thinking about making a 10gal 'bait' bucket to transport them since the last set i had bit right thru the bags the local pet store gave me. Only problem is so far i haven't seen any bait bucket aerators that can handle 10 gallons that are either battery operated or plug into the cig lighter of the car and it's almost a 3hour drive from where i'm at now.

what about a battery operated air pump. that should work.

where would i find one of those? only ones i've seen so far can handle up to only 5gal unless i'm looking in the wrong place.

hagen battery air pump, will work as deep as 2 feet deep.do not know what it rated for.

2 feet should be fine for a 10 gallon bucket. it's only going to be used for the 2 1/2 - 3 hour drive from NJ to Hallstead. Thanks for the help though i really appreciate it.

nah we'll make sure they are fed the night before they come up lol.....mom doesn't make food or potty stops on the way :wink: :lol: ......i drive straight threw. all the fish are the last to come up so i don't have to worry about moving the tanks around while doing the work on the house so 'grandma' will make sure they're fed before hand
