Moving Fish

I'm considering the purchase of a 150 gallon tank which is currently up and running, my question is that if I go with this what is the best way to transport the fish? The ride will be 2 plus hrs

You might want to line those buckets with some sort of plastic trash bag. Sometimes the sides of them can be a little abrasive and really scratch up a fish.

I always used an Igloo cooler, it keeps the temperature fairly stable & provides plenty of lateral movement space.
