The problem the carriage of fish long distance faced by many aquarists. Short trips fish mostly stand normally – if you just bought them, and bringing home, you can be calm. In a jar or a well-tied plastic bag for an hour or two with your Pets, nothing will happen.

Well, if you change your place of residence, and you have far? Here too it is worth considering. Best of all, in order to transport use a regular plastic bag. It is perfect if it is of dense material, then it would be difficult to damage or break. The volume of the bag for transporting fish over long distances – the more the better, especially if you'll be a long time. /p>

Fish from one tank pour water from it, only it must be done in advance when the water is clear without any fine particles. You can eve fish packing to produce a partial replacement of water or to fill containers 2/3 with water from the aquarium which contained the fish, and 1/3 fresh water. The less fish you have in the package, the easier it is to move them. To avoid injury, it is better to separately transport of fingerlings and adult fish. Count: 1 liter of water 5-7 fish with a length of 2 cm./p>

If there is a need in one package to carry a large number of fry, without the injection of oxygen is not enough. Rwe recommend to use two packages, one needs to be nested within another in case if one of them is leaking. The corners of the packages should be dressed – with the help of elastic or just tie a knot. If you do not, fish, especially small ones, can get stuck in the corner, to suffocate or to be crushed. Some stores use special packages with rounded corners, which are designed for carrying fish./p>

Often fish die in the move because of water pollution and lack of oxygen in it. {!LANG-d9bb0d73aa20ae87b102a41131bf2297!} If you buy fish at the pet store, and you have a long journey ahead, ask to packets filled with oxygen. In some stores you will ask if you want to go, and will make all necessary. /p>

Fish can be Packed in plastic containers with lids or in plastic jars. Rigid containers, compared with packages much easier. First, it is unlikely fish will be able to pierce them with their spines or cause other damage. Secondly, they have no corners, which can get fish. Thirdly, during the trip you can remove the cover and let in fresh air. Fourth, these containers are much easier to open to release the fish into their new home. /p>

Fish do not feed during the day before moving. When you move the ideal option is a darkened container. In the dark fish less afraid and behave quietly. And even better to carry them in termosumki. It is not only dark, but also have the opportunity to maintain a comfortable temperature in winter with heaters and in the summer heat. /p>

The new place does not release the fish immediately into the aquarium. It is necessary that the temperature of the water in the package was the same as in the aquarium. To achieve this, the package is not unleashing, put in the tank. The water in the aquarium needs to be settled and fit for aquarium fish. When temperatures are equal, untie the package and add a small amount of water from the aquarium to the package. This procedure must be repeated several times until, until the water from the tank will not make up a large part of the water that was in the package. Thus it is necessary to monitor the status of their Pets. If all goes well, they can be released into the aquarium.
