    Well too much water, means less air in the bag, which isn't good for the fish. I'm assuming he isn't going to use breather bags. Best would be to use breather bags, and have no air in the bags. People are always getting reminded to put more air than water in the bags at our monthly auctions.

    I used breather bags but even w/o breather bags you should try and fill it up at least 75-80% IMO. There will be plenty of oxygen in the water and in the bag itself to get a fish or two through.

    A lot will depend on the number of fish in the bag. Too many fish in one bag and you'll have bigger air issues.

    Yeah if I go with bags I would only do 1 fish per bag due to the length of the ride.
    10g- 5 diamond tetra, 1 oto, 1 albino BN pleco, 1 assassin snail and 2 blue shrimp. Heavily planted tank.

    Rob, I'm going to have to agree with Korith about the amount of air vs. water when transporting in non-breather bags. You want enough water to cover the fish but the rest should be air.

    About Sloshing. Unless you have to slam on the brakes or take evasive action to steer clear of a potential accident, sloshing should be minimal for the most part. How many people have an open can or bottle of something to drink, while driving. I often have a cup of coffee (no lid) sitting on the hump on the floor in my truck with no lid. Ok, it's got a flat-top hump and a rubber floor mat, but the coffee stays in a full cup.

    Sorry, I overlooked the fish in the profile. Part of the reason I ask where you were going to school is I was thinking send them here by next day air and pick them up when you get here. There are problems with that plan and may not be better than many of the suggestions provided.

    Overnighting them is expensive.
    I live probably 40+ miles East of the CO School of mines.
    Your plants amd fish likely are healthy now, and mine are too, but that could change.
    I plan to start re-stocking my 125g. I only have 1/3 - 1/2 of what I had before Ich. I am in the process of setting up the 20g, and as a self-challenge, would like to establish a balanced plant-fish eco-system in it.
