How to move aquarium fish? 8 simple steps.

Step 1

About a week before, add salt to your tank at a rate of 2-5g/L and Vitamin at a rate of 5-10mg/L.

Step 2

The day prior, fast your fish.

Step 3

On the day, siphon water into buckets and place your fish in it.

Step 4

Turn off the heater and filter, and then remove as much of the aquarium furnishings, water and gravel to allow you to move the aquarium.

Step 5

Make the move.

Step 6

Refill the aquarium with conditioned water and the buckets of water you had saved, and replace all aquarium furnishings, and equipment. Turn on your heater and filter.

Step 7

Float your fish in bags similar to when you first purchase a fish to equalise temperatures over 5-10 min.

Step 8

Add aquarium water to your bag, waiting another 5-10 min and then release your fish; starting with the smallest, least aggressive species.
