Hello all! I am new to the predator world and I’m currently waiting to transport a dwarf zebra, fu Manchu, and antennata lion fish. Along with a snowflake eel and a long spine urchin.. my drive is roughly 4.5 hours.
Any advice or tips on containers or handling the fish to transport from bag/bucket to tank..?
thanks anyone who replies!

Buckets are best, vented snapped down lid for eel and water line low enough so the lions can't jump. I may over do it but when I made a similar trip I used a battery operated air pump and stone, and occasionally aerated the water. As @piranhaman00 mentioned, use something like a container or plastic strainer to catch the lions so their spikes won't get caught in a net.
