Re: 98 fish sale.
Well, to begin with we prefiltered the water through a particulate filter.
You would have to get the details on this filter from Dan Nielson for it was
his. The water was placed in garbage cans on wheels and 2 Kordon products
were added. Novaqua and Amquel. The water was allowed to sit overnight to
come to become room temperature. On friday we started adding the fish. I
used a stick up note system where the time the fish were floated and the
first cup of water was added , was written on the stick up note. As we
patroled the area , if the bag had been in the tank for 15-20 minutes we
added another cup of water. The whole process took 45 - 60 minutes with
water being added every 20 minutes or so.
There was also marine salt (Instant Ocean) added to the species that we felt
required it ,ie Nothos ,Fundulus any species we felt needed some salt.
We also thought about George's idea in the note below of publishing the PH
DH etc , but nixed it because Syracuse water was universal enough to not
warrant this procedure.
