so i just read that Leopard wrasse's should be shipped with sand to prevent damage to there mouths from appempting to dive in to the sand when there really isnt any...

im planing a 6hour move to a new house this summer and my Leopard wrasse is comming along, so my question about this is.... should i used sand from my current setup or new sand?

i will be moving him in a reefcrystals bucket with an airstone possibly with my purple firefish and rainford goby in the same bucket...or i may bag them and put them in the bucket.

My leopard wrasses were shipped without sand from a very reputable source who ships dozens of leopard wrasses with great success. I've never heard of using sand while shipping..
