A Big Move...

I am moving out into my new apartment.

What is a way that I can transport my fishys?

I also wanted to take this oppertunity to change out the absoultly HORRIBLE gravel, and put a more fine "sandy like" gravel," so it is easier for my clowns to sift through it.

I have a 20 gallon tank. Can I just buy another 20 gallon tank and set that up and let it run for a few days to get some good bacteria flowing (with the original bio-wheel filter)? I will have my other 20 gallon, with the air running, minus the filter which will be in the newer tank.

My boyfriend bought HUGE coolers that we were going to transport the fish in (with the water from the original tank) and the ride is only 5 mins. Will they be ok?

Any id
