The new water should be as close as the tank water as possible. You don't want to shock the fry. Water changes are a must, if not, many of the fry will either die or never get their full growth.

I have an old iv bag so I use the bad for drips (1 drop by drop). Hopefully that will not change water temp much

I've forgot who but someone on this form told me
Use a heater in your bucket
Once the water match up u can move a lot quicker
If u don't have extra heater
Old cup methold
Float a few cup with clean water then do some house work then come back n dump the water in

Actually the drip method is a great idea!

This would be a little time consuming when using a 29 gallon grow out tank....
