Fish Handling Advice

I would highly recommend you don’t drip acclimate. As the fish release waste (ammonia) in the water the pH also drops. That is good as ammonia becomes less toxic the lower the pH. But as you drip acclimate the pH rises and the ammonia becomes more and more toxic. Just allow the bags to warm or cool as needed and then open the bags, pull the fish out (or pour them into a net) tossing the toxic shipping water, and get the fish into the tank/clean water ASAP. Scarry, I know. But that is how I handle all of my fish. MUCH better results this way.

Internet Explorer Users

Unfortunately the software I use for this web site does not work well with internet explorer.  With all of the other major browsers the text is light on a dark background but with internet explorer the text and background are both light making it difficult to read.  If you can try using a different browser or simply copy and paste the the text into Word or a similar program so it can be easily seen.  I’m sorry for the great inconvenience.
