    how to transport a fish?

    Hey

    I am driving to Toronto and I have sold a purple firefish to someone there.

    I need to know how to sucessfully transport the fish with the least harm to him.

    I am thinking that I need a battery operated air pump or I guess I could use one with a lighter adapter. What about the temperature of the water? Should I just keep him in a bag of water in a styrofoam cooler?

    Thanks.
    Matt

    Just put oxigen in double bags and have him in a styrofoam box. If you dont have A/C in your car Id suggest something in the box to keep things on the cool side. HTH

    Call arround a few pet stores they should have OX in a bottle, just bring your bag and fill it up. They might charge you if theyve never seen you before. Otherwise a sure bet is a welder, they use oxygen with their cutting torches, just make sure he puts OX only as the other gas they use (type of flamable gas dont remember the name) will kill your fish.

    I know how far your driving
