Ben C. Posted June 8, 2021 Share Posted June 8, 2021 Hello! Seen a lot of conflicting information on acclimation processes lately, and as I'm getting a shipment on Wednesday of some fish, I was curious as to what the nerms are doing to acclimate their fish. My process so far has been to pour the shipment bag out into a container, and slowly replace the water with my tank water by filling it up, emptying half, etc. since I don't have a good actual drip acclimation method. For this upcoming shipment, I was thinking to add all the fish (3 different species) into one larger bucket with an airstone, add Stress Guard/Prime, and repeat the same process. My concern would be: 1) Is there harm in adding water from different bags of fish together, even if they came from the same facility? 2) Is the slow acclimation process worth it, or is it more dangerous to leave them with their bag water? 3) What is your current favored method for more delicate fish? There are Blue Neon Rasboras and Reticulated Hillstream Loaches in this shipment. Thanks y'all! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
