How many fish can fit in a 5 gallon bucket when acclimating a shipment. All fish are around 1-2 inches
but do you inquire beforehand as to what conditions they lived in??dogofwar said:If the fish are coming from a mail order shipment (or will otherwise be in the bag for a long time), I just dump the fish into a net (discarding the shipping water) and put them directly into their (quarantine) tanks.
Getting the fish out of the shipping water and into their new homes is most important.
Never lost a fish this way over many shipments.
