Small tube in the main. Suction from there to the container holding the new additions already in the water of their origin. Tie a not if needed to get a drop or two every second. Empty the container with the new livestock halfway when full and continue dripping.

Add the new fish to the new tank and do not include the water.

Also, maybe buy one of these??? Pisces Pro Acclimator

Thanks Ray. I did some reading after my post and pretty much have it figured out. I'll probably DIY it - airline tubing and a gate valve is about it.

'xactly!! Those knots in the tube to dictate flow rate can be a pain.

Smile Update...and question

Water test again tonight. Ammonia is 0. Nitrite looks like 1.0 and nitrate is 10. Cycle seems to be doing it's thing. There is also more green algae growing and some brown spots on the sand. I assume the brown spots are some type of brown algae. Is that right? Anyway, seems like progress is being made.

i take a needle and poke the bag once. this allows faster acclimation and less stress while still acclimating the fish to the water temperature
