I unloaded my fish on thursday night after a 4 hour drive from Nebraska to Iowa. Our method was that we put all the fish from our 4 different tanks in four different 18 gallon rubbermaid containers. As soon as we got the fish dragged in through the back door we turned on the heaters in the containers. 3 of our containers had temperatures of 80 still, but one was all the way down to 70 for some reason(not one with botias thank goodness). So anyways they sat in there for a couple of hours while we unloaded our fish tanks from our van and got them set up. We matched temps and then put in plants, rocks, driftwood, etc. I put all my fish in and the only casualty was 1 neon tetra who probably got pinched by the net when my dad caught him. I did have 2 injuries though.
