MOVING QUESTION

We may be moving about 1000 miles. If we do, I plan to have a new tank up/operating on the other end, then ship my fish overnight from the airport.

I have moved fish before, but not air-freighted. Any/all persons who know how to do this, please send info RE packing, where (who) to call at airport, O2 levels?, drugs to calm?, temperature control? I would envision shipping one day, picking them up the next morning, driving to new home and putting in the new tank within 2 hours. I estimate a possible 24-30 hours packed/in transit. We thought about giving the fish away, but the thought of parting with the Clowns is too much, they are family! GREG
