One more thing to note. No matter how long the acclimation process the important things to check before releasing the critter are pH & SG. You want those to match before release. If they don't match drip (or otherwise acclimate) longer. The slower, more gradual the transition the better, especially if these numbers are off drastically to start with. I have a pH meter and a refractometer which makes getting a baseline and testing along the way very easy. If the parms match right away great and if they don't then I acclimate until they do match. Hopefully (?!) all of your damsels make it!
Now that was the amazing part of all this. I do not understand how the damels from the LFS
survive when i dumped in the bucket the PH
measured from PH
Monitor was 7.0. so it took a long time for it to get to 8.0 thru the drip
