How do I transition my fish to a new tank?
- Float the bag in your aquarium for 15 to 20 minutes in order for the water in the bag to reach the same temperature as that of the tank.
- Open the bag and add a cup of water from your aquarium. Reseal the bag.
- After 30 minutes your fish will finally be ready for the big move.
How do you transfer fish from bucket to tank?
If you used a bucket to transport the fish, pour both the water and fish straight into the tank. You could also use a net to move the fish if you prefer. If the fish were moved in plastic bags, let the bags float in the new water. This will help to regulate the temperature of the water in the bags.
