I'm going to be moving in Feb.7 and my jewel cichlids decided to have fry. they still have there yoke sacs and i do have a net fry breeder that hangs in the tank. i was wondering what is the best way to move and transport the fry w/o killing them? :fish:
It'll be easier if their wriggling already. If so, I'd probably pack them as if you were going to ship.
Bagged in plastic, covered in paper, surrounded by styrofoam, in a box with heat packs.
I don't have any experience with shipping as of yet so hopefully someone else will chime in, or offer a different idea.
How far is the move, or how long will it take from tank to tank?
It's a good idea to leave some with the parents so as to prevent any aggression issues.
For 5 blocks, the breeding net should be fine in a container with tank water and an aerator, assuming it won't take long to get the tank back up and running. Add a heater once they've arrived if needed while you get the tank set up.
What size is the tank?
