    Ok we have been evicted from our apartment, the new landlord want to rest out to a fried of the family. Luckyly this happend before I added the fish to my aquarium, so I dont have them to worry aboute, but I must empty the tank to transport it. I was wondering, is it possible to add the wather to a large pucet and reuse it to not have to wait another 2 weeks before i can get fish?

    My fiance sugjested, since we are not going far and the aquarium is tiny, to slide it onto a wooden plate and sit whit it in ones lap to the new place to live, can this be done or do it ahve to be emptied out?

    i had many a time , move up to a 10 gallon tank with a water and fish still in it.
    put a piece of plactic over the top, to keep the water in
    and drive slow. a 10 gallon tank will weight approx 100 pounds. it is possible to break your tank, doing it this way.
    or you could get a few clean 5 gallon buckets, and move the water that way
    it would be better to do it this way.
    let the bells rings and the horns blow, for i am back.lol

    Rollie is right. I also want to add that keeping about 40% of the water is enough if you reuse the gravel etc as well (and keep the gravel wet)

    Nice to see you around more again Rollie
