    I'm having a good fish week! First an apisto from ZeeZ, and now a box from Rogue! :;banaman

    This is all I have now, and it's not a very good picture, but more pictures will definitely be forthcoming. It's the first time I've ever drip acclimated! It's probably a little slower than necessary, but that's okay, better safe than sorry.

    Guess where my bucket came from ;D

    I would say we could play a fun "guess the fish" game but I think I already spoiled the surprise in other threads :p

    Oh, okay. That's no too different from here, though it usually isn't quite so early. (It's definitely snowed on Halloween before.) Sometime in September?

    Also, for those who have drip acclimated, how do I know when I'm done? They're in a five gallon bucket.

    Glad they all made it!! Drip for about 3 hours or so. My pH is pretty even at 7.4.

    I haven't done it yet since I'm still waiting to add fish. As suggested by nippybetta to me on here, drip acclimate till there is 3 times the original amount of water that was started with. Drops per second would be adjusted by the sensitivity of the fish to change.

    Snow? NOW? I cannot even imagine snow here yet, as the temperature currently hangs around ninety degrees day after day.

    Tigress: Well, now is not late October, so... ;D

    chevyguy: Yeah, it seems some people measure by amount of water added, and others measure by time passed. Maybe I'll do a combination of the two :p

    llama roadkill: ;D

    I don't but he's cute. :) Thanks! It's been about three hours, and there's probably three times as much water in there, but just be sure I turned up the flow rate and I'll wait until the bucket is fuller. Better safe than sorry!

    They are!! They're so cool!!!! They're my first real schooling fish and seeing them swim around together is adorable!! I feel kinda bad though; I know they're schooling so tightly because they're scared, so I feel bad enjoying their fear. One of them keeps getting separated from the group and hiding in the corner until the group comes back, haha.

    What do you guys think?? I love them, now I'm tempted to get a few more to have a larger group haha.
