Hospital Tank Question

What is the best way to move fish back to the big tank? I'm not sure how big a temperature change it is as I am not home at the moment? but I don't want to risk sending them into shock

If temperature is your only concern buy a thermometer. Id be more concerned if you used any medications while your fish were quarantined like copper because then you wouldnt want that in your main display or using the same equipment either.

Ive only used pimafix so far in the hospital tank, but may try another if it does not work. And I do have a thermometer but the heater I have in the hopital tank doesn't keep it quite as hot as the main tank. would a 5 degree difference be too much for them?

I'm not so sure on 5 degrees it it a good amount well you can always lower the temp in your main a degree or two that way its not a 5 degree difference

You could get a ziplock baggie and fill it with the hospital tank water and the fish. Then float it in the top of the main tank. Like you would when you bring fish from the fish store. Float the bag for 20-30 minutes and then move the fish into the tank.

Get a 5G bucket for the hospital tank then drip acclimate the fish.
