The members of this forum have come together to share our knowledge and experiences of fish keeping. We want to answer your questions, offer advice and fill the galleries with pictures of the fish we have all grown to love.

We are a unique community of Fish Keepers who seriously take our hobby to extremes and the NEXT level. The majority of our fish collections include RARE & EXOTIC Species of all sizes, BIG FISH with BIG APPETITES and BIG TANKS.

      If a RV is the option, get a small enclosed trailer to be your fish room. Build it to be water proof. No soft wood or carpet. You can park it under your awning when parked.

      No need to pull all the time

      I’m i the only one thinking that this is a terrible idea. Not to be a troll here but it might be a better idea to let someone else take care of the fish and get something more practical to keep.

      May be, but I recently heard of some one spending $12,000 on a vet bill for a small yorky.

      So it's all about availability of cash to do it right. A off the shelf tank, inside a rv. Is probably a poor choice.

      But everyone has to make a few of those to learn from.

      Get some enclosed tanks installed and pump 2/3 of the water from the fish tank there before driving. When you reach your destination, pump water back to the tank.

      Yeah, I'm not sure this is a very good idea. I may have no experience with this (unless being in a car with somebody who had an open cup of coffee counts lol :p), but based off the episode of "Tanked" that was previously mentioned and some basic physics, I can tell you this is probably not a good idea. Try driving a car with a tank full of water, the water will slosh everywhere and stress the fish out, it might break the tank, the RV may not even be able to hold that much weight, the tank with water will be 800+ pounds in such a small space. If I were you I'd have a friend or family member take care of the lungfish, you will not be able to provide it with a large enough tank in your situation and the fish will get very stressed out.
