1. Dim the lights in the room where your fish tank is located. Turn off any aquarium lights. Do this before you remove your fish from the shipping box since fish are sensitive to light and may be stressed by a sudden change in lighting.


2. Float the bags in your tank with the fish in them for about 15-30 minutes. This will allow the water in the bag to gradually become the same temperature as the tank's water.


3. Remove the fish from the bag and place them in the tank (quarantine tank is recommended). Do NOT add any of the shipping water to your tank!


4. Leave the tank lights off for a few hours to let the fish adjust to their new tank.
