Acclimating Thai Imports

I understand the bettas in Thailand are kept in completely different water conditions... how can I ensure the health of my incoming imports? How can I acclimate them to the different chemical levels found in our water vs Thai water?

Thanks! Hopefully they aren't DOA; they are irreplaceable!

They're going to Linda today right? I'm picking up my fish tomorrow and helping her pack and ship Wednesday.

IMO acclimating imports should take a few days, floating first day and adding water the next few days and then releasing them. Do you have IAL?

No I don't have any IAL :/ But yes, my shipment went out yesterday. I hope Linda gets back to me soon for the payment! Oh, and don't steal my fish! :P

Lol I won't. She said she'll be emailing everybody to get payment because she wants to ship all the fish Wednesday.

I was interested in microworms and i suppose the vinegar eels wouldn't hurt either! That'd be amazing! Can I paypal you for those?
