well drio acclimation its simple what u want to do its instead of floating the fish u want to put them in a bucket then wit air tubing and if u have one of those valves to regulate the flow u could just siphon water and u could regulate u usually want about six drops per minute, when it doubles the amount of water in the bucket/container take out half and doit again when it doubles again they r ready to be put in their new home,ill try to find a vid and post it

well i would think atleast 3-5 but i dont have experience with them but being schooling fish thats my guess

http://youtu.be/AaEA3CDesGY but use drops between 5-6 per second 1-2 will take forever and u need to remove half of the water when the water doubles the amount u started wit and then doit one more time and after it doubles you should be good the fish will be already used to the temp, ph etc
