Help! Help! How long can the plants last?

Post by lilacamy931 on Thu 25 Mar 2010 - 19:40

I am rehoming some fish tonight and had to take pretty much every single plant out. I then need to move the cories on Sunday (to ensure all the filters are kept ticking over). How would the plants be floating? As im going to need to keep the tank pretty bare so can catch the cories. The plants needed rescaping and a huge pruning anyways so can do this as I put them back in but worried they could die off within Friday/Saturday...

Can you put them in fish bags with some water in them and float the bags in the tank? Or keep them all in a bucket until you're sorted?

No spare tanks with any lighting unless one stood in the window with natural lighting counts?
Otherwise they will have to float in my current one.....do you think this would be ok?

What about a plastic storage container near the window... you could put a filter in there to keep circulation?
