Hey guys i know you have all heard of acclimatizing new fish to your aquarium before and that it is a very important role in succesfully transferring a new fish ... well you want to know a little secret ... if you take a fish from a tank with a slighty lower pH and a slightly lower temp and just drop it into a tank thats is slightly higher in temp and slightly higher in pH and more alkaline then there are no worries.... it is only whehn you work the opposite way that you will get negative results...this is not usually shared with many people due to the fact that this info could easily be mistaken and done in the reverse order...but if you are sure of these conmditions you can perform this operation no problem ... just thought you might want to know
