I currently house my Oscar in my 55gal tank in my kitchen. Well we are redoing our floors on Tuesday and have already begun to rip up the old floors. My question is when I dismantle his tank what should I put him in? Will a 40 gal rubbermaid tub work or will that bow? If I were to do that do you think I could leave him in there for a day if my OTB filter will fit on the side? I don't think I would be able to put my canister on cause the rubbermaid would be on the hallway floor and at the same level with the canister. What should I do? I was hoping to dismantle his tank Mon evening and hopefully get his tank back up and running Tues evening??

:) He'll be fine. I did something similar w/ (3) 8/10" fish in a 40g rubbermaid when my 110g cracked. They were in there 3 days before I could get something else up & running. HOB filter w/ water a bit low & they did fine. They sulked for another 3 or 4 days but no problems. "T"
