Ok I will be receiving some new fish in a couple of days and want to do a fw dip for all of them while they are in the qtank. I was just wondering what is all necessary to do a fw dip. I know you need about a gallon of rodi water, a heater, air stone. When you need to raise the ph of the freshwater do you need to get a ph buffer for freshwater or can u use the same stuff for salt water. Also in order to measure the ph of the fw do you need a ph test for fw or not. Also another question I have is how do you tell that the fish is doing ok in the dip. How should it act and how do you know if you did something wrong and need to take it out of the dip.
