    Re: A newbie on a 2 ft tank

    Today I did the treatment the dripping method with the up aqua buffer barrel recommended by UA.



    I took out a liter of water from my tank and into the barrel, poured in the paraguard, mix it and let it drip slowly, takes about 45 minutes.
    I went for the full dose.

    The difference is night and day.

    yesterday when I poured the med directly in the tank, after a minute or two some went into panic mode.
    they were swimming all over the place as if trying to find a way out of the tank.
    I had a
    emergency bucket of aged water beside me, if anyone of them flips, I would do the water change immediately.
    thankfully nothing happens.

    Today when using the buffer barrel they were calm through out the whole time.
    no hiding, not jumpy, just shrimps doing their daily shrimp things.

    Thanks again UA, I couldn't imagine stressing the shrimps daily for the next 2/3 weeks.

    It's acclimatisation. Conversely, if fish are raised in a tank with gradual increase in toxicity, they would be comfortable, whereapon a big water change with clean water will also present great shock and stress.

    @tetrakid,

    Yeah it kind of reminds me about the frog in boiling water vs the frog in cold water slowly heating it to boiling point experiment.
