I've also found that if I feed the fish the day that I put new fish into the aquarium, they usually don't eat. They need time to adjust to the new settings and the old fish sometimes get stressed from the addition. So I give a full day or two after adding new fish before feeding the tank.

I'm terrible. I float the bags for at least 15 minutes, but after that, I pour the bag out into a net and add the fish into the tank.

I guess it helps that I get most of my fish from work, and I do the water testing there myself, and I keep an eye on the fish.

It's been ages since I've lost anything other than some iffy guppies. I guess I'm lucky like that.
