    I've gotten it down to about 5 drops a minute. Really depends how air tight that valve you have is. The cheap ones still let the air leak through when they are fully closed, so you'll still get enough drops going through.

    Lol at that rate it might take a week to fill up that cup :D

    that is a pretty neat idea, i know i have had ones that leak just a little tiny bit of air, and i throw them out. I will keep them from now on

    Nice write up WT - thanks

    Ok I have a dumb/obvious question. The fish/crabs/shrimp/target that you are trying to add is in a container where the drip is going. Is bucket got the LFS water and the fish just swimming freely in the bucket and tank water is being dripped in?
    I'm confused on the state (in-bag, not-in-bag, etc) in which the fish are for the drip-method to work best

    You empty the fish with the lfs water into your container, that would be the red cup. Wait til it fills and then dump some out, repeat that process until the parameters in the cup (in theory) match the parameters in the tank. You are slowing adding tank water and removing both until you have just tank water. Then net them out and in they go.
