    Default Packing fish for travel.. oxygen?

    Need to pack up my fish for a move. The trip will be 24-30 hours.

    Was trying to find oxygen to pack the bags with... Would this work?

    Burnzomatic Oxygen

    I bought some oxygen tabs that I found on eBay and tried bagging up a chromis. It did more harm than good as the fish looked totally stress out after just 2 hours.

    Any other suggestions?

    Thanks for the suggestion. That may work.. I can bring my fish to the lfs in buckets and have them bag it up.

    Appreciate it!

    I brought all my fish and corals from Missouri with bubbler in a cooler.

    Found an oxygen tank for cheap so will bag up the fish myself and add oxygen. Have a quite a few fish including some big tangs and figured this would be the safest bet.

    Try to keep the fish in as dark of a place as soon as possible to minimize their movement to minimize o2 use

    You can use a bucket container. Make a hole and place a tube in the hole. Then get a battery operated air pump.

    Air pumps are much safer than bags. I have used these bags before when traveling.

    Also if possible with bigger fish(tangs and angels) don't feed for a couple days first. Purge their system so they don't pollute up the water as fast. This is what online sellers do with them prior to shipping out.
