GOING NORTH

Well, I have to take down the computer today, so I am signing off for now. I will be back, we need some more arguments about filtration (I always was a trouble-maker!!)

I hope the fish do well- about 4-5 hours out of the tank. The tank gets stripped empty, shrink-wrapped, and moved right on top of the hutch (keeping the gravel drained but damp)

i asked my 7 year old how she figured the Clowns would hitch-hike north. It took her a minute to figure out I was joking.

The fish go into 5 gallon buckets with snap-lids, airholes drilled through, battery-operated airpumps with an airline/stone run through the top. Should be around 85, so that should be alright. I WILL have to use tap-water to set up the tank- !@##$$%!! They should be out/transported and back in in about 4 hours.

The RO unit won't be installed in time
