    Travailing with koi >36 hours

    May need to drive our koi back from Koi America this year. About 1000 miles. We usually take 3 days to drive back but can do it in 38 hours or so.

    So... say you had two koi, 15" and 10" (not sure what we are getting yet) Transporting in a car with capacity for two large coolers

    How would you go about transporting them for 40 hours?

    I'd bag them together in ne cooler and then rebag with full water from the other cooler. If you do not have O2 with you, then I'd llok for a auto dealer or other service shop that would have O2 that you could use in the rebagging process.

    Now, if you had larger koi than what you specified, I would rethink it some.

    I can get a medical D tank. Already have the pin index regulator.

    What are the risks to this? Anything special I should do when placing them in QT?

    Hoping I will not need to drive them back.

    Stan,
    Just have a bowl so thay you can slip them out of one bag into the bowl and then from there move them by and into the new bag of water. O2 them and reband. a pinch of elbagin wouldn't hurt either.

    I'll show you how at KA.

    Stan I've had them continously bagged up for 30+ hours in the car without any problem. They splash nicely at night in the hotel room
