Unpacking Your Fish Order

Float bags until temperature is equal in the bag and the tank. Do Not Trickle Water Into The Bag! This will change the Ph and cause the nitrate and or ammonia levels to rise and become toxic to the fish, possibly poisoning them right in the bag!

Open the bag and pour fish through a net and then place them in the clean tank. Do not put the packing water into the clean tank, discard the packing water.

Shipped fish are stressed and weak, do not put in an established tank with larger and or more aggressive tank mates Any Questions, Please Email, Call or Text.
