FISH VET APPROVED ACCLIMATION PROCESS.

When your new fish arrive remove the tied fish bag and float it in your tank till the water temperature in the bag and tank is similar or equal (It usually takes 20-30 minutes). After that try and gently remove the fish from the bag with your hand (We don't recommend using a net) and discard water in the bag, do not pour bagged water into your tank.​

NOW WHAT DO WE EXPECT FROM HERE?

Each fish reacts differently to the new environment after shipping. Some might acclimate like a champ and act like nothing has happened. However, for some the typical behaviors are sluggish, bottom sitting, slimy, hide in a corner, swimming like they have swim bladder issues, not very interested in food, ect.

Please leave the fish alone for at least 24 hours after releasing into the tank. What we meant by that is please do not feed/treat the fish with any medications right away. We highly recommend adding aquarium salt at a rate of 3 lbs per 100 gallon and keeping tank temperature at 78-82 degree. The reason why will be stated below.

 

If after 48 hours the fish still not interested in food or bottom sitting or if you suspect the fish is not doing well. Please do not hesitate to contact us right away.

WHAT DO I FEED MY FISH AFTER ACCLIMATING?

It's very important that you DO NOT feed the fish for the first 24 hours. Regardless of how desperate they beg please DO NOT feed. You will end up hurting its GI tract instead.

 

We included Antiparasite Duo Pellet along with your order to feed your fish for the first 7-10 days as the ONLY food. DO NOT feed any other food during that time. Have your tank temperature at 78-82 and add aquarium salt at a rate of 3 lbs per 100 gallon to help clear out their guts better.

All of our fish has been quarantined for 4 weeks prior to shipping. However, with the new acclimation guide recommended by our Fish Vet the attached medicated pellets will strengthen the fish by killing off opportunistic parasites that could've risen from the stress of shipping.

SPECIAL CASES

There will be a fish that would take longer than 24-48 hours to recover from shipping. If that's the case we kindly ask you contact us asap and we will try my best to help you and get the fish back on track.
