Essentially it will be overnight, the flight is 11 hours so allowing for waiting and transport this end it won't be more than 24 hours. Of course I would be keeping a very close eye on the water anyway and as you say extra water changes.. I may even put them on the very established tank on my desk it would easily accomodate 100 fish since it has 150 of that size in already. Its a while yet so I have plenty of time!Hate to say cycle matters little to me ..
Get sponges going in any/every cycled tank and they might be able to be moved .
I just do extra water changes along with having all tanks running .
When I have a tank fishless I still keep it up and running often not cleaning it after I pull the fish until it is ready to be stocked .
I would think getting them back to 82 is more important then time ? They cooled down in shipping for time frame ?
Hopefully I will have all the wiring and airline in this weekend so will take an updated pic or two of my progress on the fish room. I think I could probably fit a few more filters in the existing tanks as well to help the cycling along a bit.
