Acclimating new Troph stock

1712 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  Belair62
Planning on getting a group of Trophs. They are living in 8.5 pH right now. My water is 8.0. What method of acclimation is suggested to minimize any problems ? Is this close enough in pH not to worry ? Should I buffer the water up ?

I would buffer the quarantine tank to 8.5 and then let the pH lower over the three weeks of quarantine.
Thanks DJ. That is exactly what I did.everyone is happy in the tank.
