I have a shipment of Demasoni and Yellow labs coming in this morning. I have never gotten any fish through the mail and am a little frightened when it comes to $100 worth of fish. My tank is completely cycled with a 25% water change this morning. Ammonia=0,Nitrite=0,Nitrate=20ppm before water change, PH=8.0

The fish were raised and are being shipped in water with a ph of 7.2, while mine is 8.0.

Do I drip or dump? :-?

Here's what I did, spent a little over $100 on Apisto's and they're doing fine...got them in on Tuesday.

Floated the bag for about 20 minutes then took a bucket with a net and poured gently put the fish in the net (I didn't have a small enough net to go inside the bag) and then just put them in the tank.

Couldn't do the drip method with mail order fish, they're thriving and doing just fine.

All 4 of them that I did this with are fine and exploring their new home. :thumb:
