Hello all!! I have a general question. I am going to be moving into my dorms in the summer and was just wondering how to transport my betta fish correctly. I still have his little container he came in but it makes me nervous if it is unheated. It will probably be a 45 minute commute there and I probably won't be able to set up his tank right away since I will have a million other things to do! Should I drain his tank and place him in the container and then just fill it up when I get to the house? I don't have anymore ideas!

With the covid-19 mess you likely won't be moving until fall...if then. I fear the rest of the country will follow NYS and it hasn't peaked here yet.

I would transfer in a 5g bucket w/lid and a battery air pump.
