Usually for acclimatizing you would add abit of water, wait 10 mins, add abit more water, wait another 10 minutes, so on and so forth until the original volume of water at least doubles. For shrimps

How to get temp low? Must use chiller? Sent from my CPH1611 using Tapatalk

Fish maybe. Fishes perhaps not for the well-being of your livestocks, I suggest Cycling your tank a little longer. When the tank is able to process 0.25-0.5 ammonia within 24 hours, I'll then consider adding in livestocks at a gradual pace

If you’ve been dosing bacteria to speed up your cycling process, IME 2 weeks is enough to put a couple of fishes in, but definitely don’t just fill up your whole tank with several things at once hahaha. Don’t know about the product you’re using but I’ve used seachem stability and brightwell Aquatics microbacter 7 to cycle tanks before and the fastest cycle I’ve had that achieved 0 Ammonia and nitrite took barely 5 days.

For starters The API saltwater test kit bundle is decent. Includes measuring kits for Ammonia, nitrite, nitrate and high range pH.

Seachem stability is good to have one. Zero casualties with my experience.

Yup. Tried once putting a small black sponge seeded with bacteria from main tank into my brand new QT tank, added seachem stability over a period of 3-4 days and put a couple fishes in with no problems.

It is good to have when you do water change also.
