Hi all I have 7 Betta's (yes 7!) arriving from Thailand tomorrow. They will have been in transit a good few days & I have never imported fish before - so I am really really nervous! (and excited - all in one!) I have been preparing QT housing for them all for weeks (it seems!) plus researching the best way forward to give them the best start I can. My water is very hard & they will be coming from soft water conditions. Very helpful guy at the LFS told me that apart from letting them adjust for temp, around 20-30mins floating in bag, they get them straight out the tiny bag, into the tank after that. Reason - the bag produces highly toxic matter within seconds of being opened. Other people say they put a drop of prime into the bag then drip acclimate them over several hours. My big dilemma here is that I have seen the size bags the poor fish are shipped in and they are not much larger than the fish themselves. So there is only a tiny amount of water to begin with - not even enough to open the bag & float it in the tank like one does with locally bought fish. How on earth would one drip into such a tiny bag? I'm just totally confused about how best to do this? Please help - any ideas welcome! What would you do?
