    Hans says that his shipping water has such a low pH (6.6 by my measurement) so that no matter what pH the discus get put into by the customer, the pH is almost guaranteed to be higher than the shipping water. He said discus do fine with going to water with higher pH, but it can be lethal if they go into water with lower pH, hence is really low pH shipping water.

    As others have stated, I temp match then drop them in. If packaged properly the temp should already be close to the tank water...
