sorry bearfan glad ya tank back to the norm

one last thing i was just thinking sorry just always find myself reading to much mabe cause so many diff views but, the time on acclimating snails?? it really wouldnt matter imo leaving the snails in for 6+ hours due to temp cause the bag of water would be up to tank temp in like 30 min right?? so thats false as i see it

As far as temp is concerned no, it really wouldn't matter at all. The acclimation time is to allow the animal(s) time to adjust to a different chemistry. Opening the bag to soon afterwards (more so with fish) is what kills some as well. If the temp has not equalized it can suffer pH shock.
