Drip acclimatisation over about an hour, at least.
He was in a large 2l bag which I floated in the tank for 20 mins and then began to swap the bag water for tank water a shot glass at a time. Then netted to put him in the main tank after an hour.....thought I was being cautious
Perhaps not?! What do you recommend in future? Urgh hope I didn’t kill him

    I thought you might have said you moved her straight away due to the ammonia in the bag, but you've done a normal acclimatisation, so that's not it.
