Important Fish Care:
When you receive your fingerlings open the foam box and remove the heavy duty plastic bag containing the fish, do not untie the bag until you are ready to release them. Float the bag on the top of the pond/tank water for approx 10 mins or until the water inside is about the same temperature.
Open the plastic bag by untying or cutting it carefully. Gradually mix the pond/tank water with the bag water until the bag is full, tip the bag into your pond or tank and the fingerlings will soon swim out into their new home.
