    Default Acclimation

    For those of you that purchase Discus from Chicago Discus this is how we recommend you acclimate your new Discus.

    1, Before receiving your new fish test your tanks PH and see what your working with.

    2, If the PH is lower than 7.0 or you are using R/O water than you will need to take some precautions when acclimating. Take normal airline tubing with a shut off valve attached that can reach from the tank to your bucket. Get a five gallon bucket and place the bucket below the tank on the floor. Cut the bag open and dump half the water out of the bag and place the remaining water and your fish in the bucket. Take a couple cups of tank water and pour it into the bucket as to neutralize the shipping water. Then start a consistent drip not a flow into the bucket. When the water reaches the top of the bucket you are done. Net the fish out and place him in your tank.

    3, If the PH is higher than 7.0 and below 8.3 than just place the unopened bag in the tank and wait 20 minutes. Cut the bag open dump the shipping water out and plop the fish (not the shipping water)in the tank.

    4, Once you have safely gotten your fish in the tank turn the lights off for the remainder of the day and let them get use to their new environment. The next morning turn the lights on and start your normal routine.

    I hope this helps people that purchase our Discus on Simply and have a great time and enjoy them. As people that have purchased Discus from us know that we guarantee live arrival and the health of our Discus. Thank you ........... Josie
