I would have the bags float in the tank first so they can get used to the temp. In general just do the reg acclimation that worked for u in the past. Do u have algae growth in ur tank? That usually takes care of their diet. Otherwise just feed regularly and they pick up in the leftovers.


EDIT: I forgot about ur diatoms LOL ur CUC should be fine food wise

well your the aspiring biologist. i suppose i should heed your advice. if you ever wanna change a clutch in a dump truck let me know, maybe i could return the favor.


on that note, its a wonder that all my fish are still alive considering the same hands that are covered in grease and who knows what are the same hands going bicep deep in water when i think something needs to be done and sweety pie isnt looking. fw and sw.

Hahaha I know right?! My arms are usually covered with horse poop and dog slobber and then I stick that into my nice and clean reef tank hahaha

Guess I should find more human friends, but that species is just so freaking annoying >.<
