I feel stupid posting this hear but really i think this is the most fitting area to put this in. so i will soon be become the owner of some fish and have the task of moving them the hour journey from there current home to mine. now I'm no newby to fish keeping but i want to make sure I'm not missing something stupid out as i've never traveled a fish more than 10- 15 min before. so if people can tell me anything I'm missing hear or any tips they have then please do!

So the fish are:
*one small to mid sized plecc
* one mid sized red tailed shark
* 2 kissing fish
* 1 plattie
+Tank, set up and some food

So the old owner is not going to feed em for 24hours before the move.
buying some fish bags tomorrow (i know to only fill about 1/3 of the way with water the rest with air. going to double bag em just in case).
will also be tracking down some insulated boxes tomorrow.
will take as much water from the tank as i can in the spare bags and put the tank fixtures in bags with water too.
I know to let the heater cool down in the water for 10 or so min before taking it out
I know to empty the tank completely of gravel before moving it (and will most likely tank the optionality to wash the gravel).
i know to do the normal float the bag / acclimatize the fish before putting em back in the tank at the other end. and not feed em for 24 hours then only very lightly after that. Of corse i would also keep a close eye on the water qualities =) but I'm a bit of a water quality completive tester anyways =)

is there anything I'm missing? or not accounting for?
So a family friend wants to re-home theres fish so guess who's getting em. ME! ^_^ So excited! fish fish fish fish fish! soon i shall be the owner of a red tailed shark, a plecc, two kissing fish and a plattie (random little assortment i know!).

I'll be getting em next Sunday, witch means i've feverishly looking up tips on how to move tropical fish. will be going to the pet shop to buy transport bags tomorrow and freaking out about all the possible ways the move could go wrong. ekk!

wish me luck friends!

The wisdom of the spirits
I really should be sleep >_< oh well. As most people know i love foxes and sketch em a lot. So hear is a young fox talking to a spirit fox. not sure where i got the idea from....just kind of happened as i was sketching =) in my mind the young fox has just been orphaned and it going to the spirit for fox help.
 
Going to have to re-visit this picture later and make it better / digitalis it properly.

*glomps* i've missed you too! <3 and all the fanmily. <3 i'm pretty good thanks =) things are always up and down and all over the place but right now i feel my life is a tiny bit more stable now i have two jobs and don't have to worry about where i'm going to get the money to pay the rent. =)

Thought working two jobs dosn't give me much time for much else. i am trying to start a v-blog / v-diarey thing that i#m fitting in between stuff. =)
