Switching fish between tanks
So I am finally ready to move my fish out of my 10g into their new home and while excited I am nervous to how to acclimate them. Primarily because of the difference in pH between the tanks. The new tank has a pressurized CO2 system and while I know that pH changes due to gas being dissolved while the fish are already in there is not a major concern I am worried if the initial "shock" would be too much. Or am I over-thinking this and should just net and move them into the new tank? Here is a picture of the results of the different tanks. One looks about 6.0 while the other is roughly 6.6.

You could just leave the CO2 off for a day and transfer them, then there would be no big difference.
