  1. Default 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.

    Alright, that's easy enough, guess I was overly concerned.

    Excellent and easy suggestion there! Make sure, if you are using CO2, that you are either shutting it off at night OR turning on an air stone. You will deplete the oxygen if you don't. (I lost 14 fish in one night. I know!)
