    Ahh, I forgot about that. The bag method, where you pour some tank water every so often? I think I did that the last time with my BRBs. Now that I recall, the drip method put them in a catatonic state. lol

    Glad to know your the...err, king of...err, your...err, house, LOL!! But yeah TWS way seems the easiest way to acclimate fish, the sooner you can get them out of the bag water the better, IMO.

    I plop and drop 90% of the time. Extended shipping or times where I am dealing with delicate fish I dont.

    I do this for local buys. Most of my buys, of late, have been mail order, though. Previously, I had tried the drip method with some success. My ordeal with Black Ruby Barbs, however, has led me to the TWS method.
