Just another quick thing if you haven't already used the ph testers... I find (and I think this is universally true) that if you got the paper dip test strips are so far off from actual readings (taken with liquid API master's kit) so as to render them useless. In my case I found the ph to be off nearly an entire point.
But I suppose if you use the same method for both waters it may work? Did not test this theory though...
Well you are better educated than I about proper acclimation (didn't see the link until after:() and shipping care so I think Joey is in good hands. Do wait a few days before posting happy glowing reviews to the seller and transhipper though. It often takes 2-3 days for the effect of ammonia burn to be apparent.
Oh and RO, since that acronym wasn't clarified is reverse osmosis water. It's pretty cheap at any drug store. I wouldn't use it as your sole source of water though because it has no mineral content and it detrimental in the long run. If you don't use oak leaves, or a blackwater extract of some sort, I would recommend some aquarium salt, but it is not totally necessary. Just some nice clean ph neutral warm water will do wonders.
And post some pics after a day or so when you can put the light on :)
