I am a science teacher who inherited many class pets when my predecessor left. He made absolutely no plans for these critters, and now I feel horribly because with the COVID school closures I am unable to take care of the critters (I live 30+ minutes from school and cannot bring them home). Long story short, I am rehoming them.
I need to move a rather large cichlid and a rather large sucker fish out of their tank to be able to give them to the community members who are interested in taking them.
I've never had fish before. How do I contain these large fish to rehome them properly without causing harm? Would a large bucket full of their tank water work? I'm so overwhelmed at the thought of this.
Any insight would be so appreciated. Thanks in advance!
