Acclimation

  1. After your box has arrived, open to check on the fish then set it right next to your aquarium for one hour.
  2. After one hour, float the unopened bag in your aquarium for half an our.
  3. After 30 minutes deftly reach into the bag and gently scoop your fish and place into the aquarium. 
    For Bettas, you can pour into a net over a bucket if you are squeamish.
  • Do not get shipping water in your aquarium.
  • Do not mix aquarium water with shipping water to acclimate.
  • Do not drip acclimate.

Mixing bag water and tank water is OK when you buy a fish from the local fish store but not for shipped fish due to ammonia build up and PH drop.
