Bring it to your LFS with a bunch of your water and have them bag him up for you. Then transport it inside a styrofome cooler. Let them know how far you are going and they should bag it in a large bag with a lot of pure oxygen. It's common for LS to get shipped long distances and that's probably your best bet.


When I moved my tank 200 miles I converted a 50 gallon cooler into a tank and ran pumps and heater off of a power inverter in the car. You could do something like that on a smaller scale as well.
