Package them well in plastic bags, IDK how big the fish are, and fill the bag with oxygen from the local fish store or gas supply place. 8 hours isnt too bad as long as you dont stop for a couple hours for lunch in the heat.

You can maintain slightly overstocking by doing weekly waterchanges, and making sure not to overfeed.

livingreefs.com is a great forum
The inch per 10 gallons has always been a weird thought to me. if you have adequate filtration and a good protein skimmer you can support more fish.
Currently i have
Yellow tang
Purple tang
3 clowns
4 chromis
4 fire fish
cleaner goby
and that is a lot of fish for a 90 gallon tank. now i do have a big sump and frag tank in the same loop but that is almost inch per 5 and i have been fine with that many for the last 3 years. it all depends on the maintenance and how good your filtration system is. i spend about 4-8 hours a week on basic tank maintenance.

I put them in plastic bags from the pet store and didnt use any additional air oxygen to fill the bags. Then I placed them snugly in a styrofoam cooler filled with an inch of water. The entire ride was about 9 hours from time of bagging to arrival. So far all fish are looking good *figers crossed* only fatality was my aquarium which suffered a crack on the bottom from sitting in the bumpy trailer.

Take them to a fish store and have them bagged up with oxygen, or http://www.kordon.com/kordon/product...bags#suppliers! and transport them in a cooler to maintain temps. I think my buddy buys these bags on ebay.

Here's a moving thread you might find helpful, but it's a reef related one. http://www.nano-reef.com/topic/20572...moving-a-tank/

I have all wild fish that I caught while fishing. Smallmouth bass, sun fish, blue gills, and about 10 or so craw fish. I raise my own meal worms/beetles to feed them. Free big fish, and free food. I'll take a few pics and post later when I'm home.
