    Hi. I have 21 kuhli loaches, including 8 java ones, 4 bettas, 20 harlequin rasboras, and 10 red cherry shrimp

    I will put each species and each betta in different containers. What is a good container for that? SHould i just put them in my 32oz soup containers? I think i can do that for each betta and all the shrimp. I could also split the loaches in two or 2x10 and rasboras in two, 2x10, and put them all in four cups. what you think?

    How far are you moving?
    I've heard people use 5 gallon buckets. Walmart sells battery powered bubblers for keepwells on boats so you could get one that will run for a good 4 to 6 hours.

    5 gallon buckets and those oxygen tablets fishermen use in bait buckets.

    I use 5 gallon buckets with a heater and air pump plugged into an inverter.

    about 25 miles. I guess ill have a new aquarium setup at the new location too. on advisement, i will buy a marina battery powered bubblier. You think it is okay to put both harlequin rasboras and kuhli loaches in a black 5 gallon bucket, or should i go with soup containers like my bettas and shrimp?
