Moving to a new home is both an exciting and stressful time. There’s nothing quite like a fresh start in a new place. It’s a blank canvas just waiting for you to make your mark. It’s just that there is also a lot of stuff to move! And for fish owners there comes the added complexity of how to move the carefully acclimated ecosystem of their aquatic pets.

While moving fish is not as simple as loading them into a carrier with their favorite blanket or toy it’s not an impossible task. And I’m sure you don’t need reminding how temperamental fish are to their environment. Because they are so easily upset I highly recommend setting a day aside dedicated solely to moving your aquarium. Ideally, your fish will spend as little time as possible outside of their familiar habitat.  

Before you begin disassembling your tank you’ll want to have the place you would like it to be located in your new home already picked out. This way you can have a plan of action to put into place as soon as you pull into the driveway. You’ll also want to make sure you have the proper supplies for moving your tank. 

Check in your local aquarium shop for advice on how to move your specific type of fish. You’ll also want to pick up some bags like those your fish are placed in when you first bring them home, a battery operated pump, a fish net, a few 5-gallon buckets with lids and a siphon hose if you don’t already own one. Be sure to bring home as many bags as fish you own. You’ll also want to pick up or borrow a cooler that would fit your bagged fish if you don’t have one. 

To preserve as much of the vital bacteria in your tank’s ecosystem you will want to siphon as most of your tank water into your new buckets along with your aquarium’s rocks and filter. Pumps, heaters and other tank accessories can be packed separately as normal. 

Your fish will be much easier to catch with less water and nowhere to hide. Gently catch your fish and place each one in its own individual bag filled ⅓ of the way with water from the tank. You’ll want to place all of your fish in the cooler as the dark reduces stress and the insulation helps to prevent extreme temperature changes.  

When setting up your tank in your new home remember that you want to get your fish back in their familiar habitat as soon as possible. Start by adding the water and rocks from your buckets. You’ll want to hold off on setting up any complex decorations until your fish are in the tank and a few days to settle down. You’ll just want to add any live plants you may have and a place or two for your fish to hide.

Top off your tank with the appropriate type of water your fish and consider using a bacterial additive to support your fish's ecosystem as they adjust to the big move. Watch the readings on your water closely for the next month and do not add new fish until acclimated. You will also want to hold off on feeding until your water reaches proper levels. 

I'll be honest t’s not the simplest process to move with fish but it’s also not the most difficult. And if you’re a fish enthusiast it’s well worth the effort to keep your beautiful friends happy. With some proper planning and some help from your partner or a friend moving your fish can be a smooth, stress-free experience.


There are many safety concerns that you probably have when it comes to owning your home. Don’t forget about the safety of your 4 legged friends as well. Below, you’ll find some tips on how to keep pets safe in and around your home the whole year through. 


In The Yard


If possible, keep harmful pesticides away from the yard where your pets play. If you do need to use any kind of pesticides or harsh chemicals, be sure that they are completely dry before pets come back into the yard. There are many natural pesticides that work well on plants and in your garden. An example of this is a simple mixture of cayenne pepper and water sprayed on a vegetable garden. There are many other mixtures that can help you deter pets such as:


  • Garlic
  • Baking soda
  • Cloves
  • Cornmeal
  • Vinegar


Yard Work 


Another thing to worry about in your yard when you have pets is yard equipment. Electric tools, clippers, mowers, even ladders can be a hazard to your pets wandering around outside. 


Designate An Area For Your Pet In The Yard      


You should have a designated area in your yard for your pet to be in, complete with chew toys and more to distract your pet. You’ll also want some sort of an outdoor leash installed to keep your pet in their area while outdoors. Your pet will be less likely to destroy your yard if you take these precautions.  


Make Sense Of Pet Safety With The Seasons


Pet safety will have different tasks to go along with it as the seasons change. During the summer months, you’ll want to be especially careful about your pet’s presence around the pool and pool chemicals. The Fourth Of July brings on concerns about fireworks and firework safety. Halloween candy is especially toxic to pets since there’s a lot of chocolate and candy around the home. If pets eat these items, it can be potentially fatal.  In the summer months, you need to keep your pets cool by providing them with plenty of shade and water. If you need to keep them indoors during times of extreme heat you should do so. Protect pets from the hazards of the Christmas tree by hanging fragile ornaments higher up on the tree and ensure that the tree is secured from being knocked over by a clumsy pet.   


Deter Intruders With A Fence


You can protect your pets from dangers like coyotes and foxes by fencing in the portion of your yard where your pets go. You should also limit the amount of food and water that’s accessible in the yard to predators and other unwelcome pets in the neighborhood. Follow these tips to keep your pets safe in your home the whole year through!
