Hello and welcome to the forum!

Edit: Make sure the new water is conditioned. Float the cup in the tank water and make sure it is the same temperature, and slowly mix the water in the cup with the water in the tank, and then introduce her to the tank.

You will always be my best friend, .

I usually replace the cup water gradually with the new tank water and never dump any of the cup water in the tank. I might be overly cautious but that's me... :)

While the cup is floating in the new tank, I use a turkey baster to remove old cup water and toss it out and add new tank water to the cup. I wait about 15-20 minutes in between each water replacement.

Eventually, all of the old water will be replaced with new tank water and then you can just tip her in to the tank.

Congrats on your new girlie :)

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

eating readily is a sign of good health, but it's usually best to wait 24-48 hours after introduction to feed. the stress of the move can sometimes cause her digestive system to not function properly, which can lead to bloating, constipation, or in a worst case scenario, bowel impaction and eventually necrosis.

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.
