White is nice shorty.. I use black rubber with waterproofed plywood tops and hauling fish in sunlight raises water temps too much. White should be best for that if exposed at all. Nice!

Black sure keeps the fish calmer. I use 5 gallon buckets to transfer fish between ponds and I can sure tell the difference of putting them in a light colored bucket compared to black. They are docile in black, go nuts every time they see movement in the white.

So I suppose the ideal container would be white outside and black inside.

Do you have aeration fixed up in that cooler Shorty?

I've been trying to come up with something cheap to use to haul a few fish once in a while. Thought about one of the totes we get crop oil in but they are pretty big. Bigger than I would need most of the time.

I use black buckets around the pond too, the fish do stay calmer. The picture is 150 quart cooler with holes drilled through the cup holders on the lid to run the lines for air stones through, one air stone on each end, it's insulated so it keeps the water a consistent temperature on a long trip. It stays dark with the lid closed and latched. The picture is from when I picked up 82 4-6" SMB from Hartleys' and drove them 6 hours back to my place.

A true labor of love....


Excerpt from Robert Crais' "The Monkey's Raincoat:"
"She took another microscopic bite of her sandwich, then pushed it away. Maybe she absorbed nutrients from her surroundings."

Do you need to use O2 tanks or just fish tank bubblers?

Just bubblers. Keeping the number of fish being transported small and not letting the water get hot is key.
