    Well folks, everyone arrived safe and sound, I have a bunch of photos to share (they looked a lot better on my phone...not so great when I uploaded them here, but never the less).



    So there are many ways to acclimate a fish and I've used them all. In this particular case, I did what most people do, and floated the bags to get them up to temperature (although this didn't take long due to Kenny's superb packaging).


    After the water was up to temp, I placed the bags back into the foam boxes, cut them open, and added some tank water to each bag. (I use the drip method often, but this was a quicker solution for me, the bags were a bit stinky and I just wanted to get the fish into the tank with some clear water asap). I let the bags sit for about an hour, adding a bit of water to each bag every 10mins or so.


    After about an hour had elapsed, I started putting the fish in the tank 1 by 1.


    I had the lights on for about 15mins just to snap some photos to share, Otherwise, the lights will be off for a day or so until they get comfortable...however, they've been in the tank for less than an hour and already seem pretty happy (Stress bars are starting to fade, and they are stretching their fins)

    some more photos...again I apologize for the quality (or lack-there-of) They looked much better on my phone

    This was the free fish Kenny had tossed in - Albino Millennium Gold


    The next 2 pictures of 2 of the 3 fish that my fiance picked out..i must say, I REALLY like this Sapphire Ruby

    Ring Gene Leopard and the guy on the right is the Eruption she picked out


    All of the fish I picked out were Forrest Giant Blues ranging from 4" to 5.5"+





    I am going to let them settle for the day, and give them a feeding in the morning.......I know we have a good camera around here somewhere, I'll see if the boss can dig it up when she gets home from work and I can get some pretty photos posted when everyone is less cranky.

    Cheers!
    Mike

    Can anyone else see them? Am I on a “no look” list? I had the same problem Mike. My pics showed up as a link which I saw when I clicked on it, but no one else could see them. I’m dying to see your fishies!

    I think I accidentally set it to private viewing, give it a glance now, if that didn't work i don't know what else it could be

    Thanks guys, we found our "good" camera...although its a bit outdated by today's standards, the difference will be big I think. Expect some nicer pics over the weekend once the fish color up and settle in.
