So this is an interesting question, one that often troubled me when I first started.
I typically do one of two things when adding new livestock, and that largely depends on what time of day the livestock arrives.
My co2 is set to come on at 3:30p every day. If new livestock arrives several hours beforehand, I don't change anything. I add the fish, give them a few hours to acclimate, and let the co2 and tank do its thing naturally. If, however, the livestock will be arriving in the afternoon, I don't want to add them to my high co2 water, so I will delay, or in some cases, even turn off co2 for the day. After the initial day, all systems and processes return to normal.
