- Open the box of koi or butterfly koi and touch the bag to see how cold or hot the water feels compared to your aquarium/pond water. Do NOT open the plastic bag right away. Once the bag is open, all trapped oxygen is now gone. The most important thing is providing enough oxygen for your fish. If necessary, leave the bag of koi fish in the box for a short period of time to help in the acclimation process.
- You can now remove the bag from the box, and float the closed bag of koi or butterfly koi in the aquarium/pond.
- Once the temperature in the bag feels close to the temperature in the aquarium/pond, open the bag, scoop the koi fish out and release them into your aquarium/pond.
- We ship your koi and butterfly koi in 56 degree (F) water, so make sure the water warms up or cools down as close to your water temperature as possible.
