Lol. Yep!!! He'd been acclimating for about 20 minutes now. I had an airrator running in the car transporting him to the house. Still have it running now. Running a SLOW drip. Will acclimate for 2 hours and once I am about to put him in I am going to feed the tank on the right side and introduce him on the left side. I have to say that he doesn't even look stressed in the bucket now which relieves me. We were going to sell him out of a tank we are breaking down but he got scraped when the guy was trying to get him out and then the people didn't want him. He has been eating well for a long time now in an aquarium with many other tangs bigger than him so I hope that the new environment will be okay for him. I have always wanted this guy but was afraid of the horror stories and the price tag associated with them. However- I can't beat free! And I'm willing to take the risk on a guy that has been doing so well for so long. The only difference between his last tank and mine is that I only feed two to three times a day versus five times in his last tank. He was housed with a 7 inch black tang, a 14 inch male blonde naso, 2 yellow tangs at about 4 inches, a purple tang at 4 inches, a 6 inch blue hippo, a couple of Angela and much much more. Fingers crossed!!!
