  • Transfer w/ Bags?

    Hey guys i was thinking,

    when i trasnfer the 180 to the 275 would it be better to use some bags to hold the fish in for the transfer?

    i mean would it be less stressful than putting them in my sump with all the coral?

    i plan on throwing the coral in my 70 gallon sump with a heat and some powerheads....

    but what do you think about the fish? it would be a tight fit in there,

    so i was thinking of going to the LFS and getting some larger bags espically for the foxface and the blueface, (hopefully i can find him a good home), but for the fairy wrasse and clown fish i think it would be less stressful.

    but what do you think?

    the transfer will take less than 8 hours i think...

    hopefully i will keep it about 3ish, before the fish go into the system... maybe 8 at the most.

    what do you think?

    would it work better?

    thanks!

        The bad thing I have had happened with putting fish in bags is the move took me longer than expected and I had a powder blue tang pass.

          I think they'll be happier in a Rubbermaid or something similar.

              Watch for jumpers in the holding tubs and be sure to give them something to hide in/around.
