Water sprite

Finally got my hands on some.( ceratopteris cornuta form) Going to float it. I've heard on this board can't remember who that is hates being moved into a new environment. What can I expect it to do and how long does it take to acclimate? It's going in a 55g that will use one 48' T8 daylight bulb. Water parameters should be fine for it.

It depends upon the difference in water params. I have noticed that sometimes it will be fine moving from one of my tanks to another, but in other cases it takes a while to rebound. Just let it float, no matter what. It does need nutrients though, a liquid complete fert like Flourish Comprehensive. For the first week or two I might do two doses, 3 days apart.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If youíre going to take it under your wing then youíre responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
