Ok here are the questions but first: I am floating him in my tank with my betta, once he is acclimated I will keep him in the container with my tank water that I know is healthy because he isn't in control of swimming, a bag will be over the container to keep them form seeing each other.
I cannot get pics, my phone is charging, the params are unknown although I am a mod of a goldfish forum and I know all to well how important they are, will get them tomorrow.
