MrsKittenitis Posted July 5, 2022 Share Posted July 5, 2022 Hey all! First post! ☺️ Apologies if I miss some formatting rule or something. So a bit of background: we are moving cross-country soon (about 1400 miles!) and so I’m seriously downsizing my tanks. I’ll be getting rid of allllllll of my fish in a 75 and a 20 long. We will also probably be forced into a hotel or rental situation for a time until we can buy a new home in our new place. This means we will be severely limited on our tank sizes for possibly an extended length of time. We are definitely going to keep my daughter’s pet betta moved in a smaller 5 gallon and I am going to keep some of my blue neo shrimp colony in a 2.5 gallon. Now for my questions: 1. I have two pea puffers that I want to try to take with me as well. They are currently in a 10 gallon together and doing well. Do you think I could keep them safely in a 5 gallon? It would be heavily planted with lots of hiding spots. 2. We have an adult female bristlenose that we’ve raised from a tiny baby and none of us want to leave her behind if we can avoid it. She’s in a 75gal now. I’m worried about how small a tank I can safely keep her in. If we need to we would happily keep her in a tank alone and run ammonia pads & do frequent water changes if she’s in a less than ideal size. She poops so, so much. Also would be heavily planted. Thanks for your input! Also anyone else ever moved beloved fish cross-country before?? Any tips? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
