    Very nice, very simple drip acclimation method. I used to use the color coded tips used for plant irrigation systems, but this is way better because i have the materials on hand, adjustable on the fly... Nice DIY writeup. Also those stupid things would stop the siphon a lot if you didn't watch them carefully. Just tried this out for the heck of it in a cup seems way more reliable. Thanks

    This write-up from amazingH is also great, and easier to do multiple drips if need be (fish that cant be together in the bucket, or fish from different sources)

    I have a good LFS. When I first started this hobby he would not sell me any fish until he tested me water. He gave me a sponge to seed my tank and three weeks later I was back with a water sample and he sold me my first fish and gave me this cup.

    No losses since 2005 and almost as easy as floating the bag.
    I've always wanted to post this, everyone's style seem so complicated.

    thanks. i used to tie multiple knots in the whole length of the tubing. didnt think of using the airline regulator. ive asked a nurse at a hospital to give me one of those clips they attach on the tubes to reduce the flow of saline in to your body which would be good to use.

    That's funny you mention that Superbsite, most of my co2 setup is made from an IV from my last hospital visit. Theres a buncha nice little valves on
    IV's including nice check valves with filters, those clips, roller clips, and more, if you can get a hold of a cheap IV administration kit, you get, a check valve, a bubble counter, a stop clip like that, a roller valve, and more depending on the setup. It all takes a little modification, and for god's sake make sure it's clean, but...
