Hey guys!

I have a 55g tank with one fancy goldfish in it. He is about 4 years old, and 2inches. I am using an Eheim 2217 (canister filter).

We are moving soon. March 30th is the day that we get our new house, and we need to be out of the current one by April 1st. So that's two days to get the tank out.

I have not done this before. I have no clue how to do it safely. I do not have a holding tank or an extra filter/air pump.

I would appreciate some advice, as detailed as you can give Laughing

As you have a couple of days gap get a rubbermaid tub - 10 -12 gallon ones are easy to find - and set the fish up in this with the filter while you wait on the larger tank.

Thank you for the link! I had looked at a few other posts but I did not see that one. Smile
