Not sure why this came into my head, but I'm assuming that when acclimating fish to be in a tank with co2 that you would do the same thing you would normally do to acclimate fish right? I generally use the drip method btw, since it just lets me rest easier in my mind lol.

Hi HybridHerp,

Yep, same as a no CO2 aquarium. I do drip acclimation as well, typically over a one hour period or more and ending with 3X the original volume of water.

I set up new fish in a quarantine tank, then watch them, medicate as needed for a month or more.
During that month I acclimate them to the main tank, altering mineral levels or whatever else needs to be done. You can do the same with CO2. When you first introduce them, CO2 is off. Then slowly turn it up, a little each week, until they are in the same sort of dosage as the main tank.
