I just read the article on drip acclimation. I understand that the idea is to slowly acclimate the fish to the water conditions of my tank.
My question is about the temperature. I see that you float the bag in the tank for 20-30 minutes to equalize the temp, but the temp of my room is not 80 degrees. I figure that in the 2 or 3 hours the tank water is dripping in, the temp in the bucket will drop. Then when I finally place the fish in the warmer tank, temperature shock.
Or am I just being paranoid?
