Just added 2 neon tetras and 3 Guppys!! I am now fully stocked. I have 6 neon tetras and 3 Cobra guppies I got! As well as a new plant !! UNFORTUNATELY 30 minutes into the acclimating process when I walked away the bag must have tipped over and into the aquarium and the fish swam out :0 hopefully they will be okay..not much I can do now :/

How well will this work?

Oh, you mean the fish just getting released into the aquarium like that? Well, before I joined Fish Lore, I actually didn't acclimate my fish, as bad as that sounds. Yup, I just drained most of the water and then dumped them into my main tank, no acclimation no quarantine or anything like that. So a little of the store water went into my tank, yes. I don't think it killed any of my fish, although I don't recommend it.

You might do a little water change, but get others' advice before acting on this, though.

Welcome to Fishlore!
I agree, I would do a small water change. My mistake when I got into the hobby was that I would add the Pet Store water into my tank. Nothing happened, but one time I did it and it costed my whole entire livestock. I had a huge ICH outbreak. Hope you enjoy the forum

Yeah, unfortunate, but. Not neccesarily tragic.
if you got it locally, there is always a possibilty of the water chemistry matching up.
I actually would not do a water change yet. Its the only water that theyre used to, soI would wait, maybe do one tomorrow.
