I may be moving from little rock Arkansas to Denver area Colorado. I have downsized from 7 tanks to just 2 one being about 5 African chiclids that I plan on rehoming and the other my pride and joy 4 discus a peacock eel and a black ghost knife that I have had for about 2 years.. I hate to think of giving them away to someone else... I would really like to take them with me... Would it be possible for them to make the trip? Andif so what is the best way to move them??

I am assuming that Denver is a long way from Arkansas? I'm afraid that I can't give you information based on my experience, I think the length of Britain is probably not as long as your journey is going to be. However, one thing you'll have to bear in mind is water temperature and toxic poisoning. If the journey is going to be more than a day then you might be advised to take some fresh water that you can use to change the fish is water if need be. You also need to keep the water that the fish is in at the proper temperature. You could do this by using bottles of water, or even a hot water bottle. I would probably stop feeding the fish a day or two before you go on your journey, let it get any waste out of its system. Let the fish get the food out of the system, this will help a little warm water quality.
