    My favorite LFS sells livestock in small plastic containers like ones used for soups in Chinese take out. Plus, I spend a lot of time floating around our pool on a noodle, so I put the two together for the simplest acclimation system ever.

    A ring is formed with ½ inch hose connected with a small nipple into a float for the container.

    Every few minutes, a turkey baster in and a turkey baster out.

    Works like charm.

    Very cool Idea!
    Some could even use the same tubing and nipple alone to use as one of those feeding rings to prevent floating food from going all over the tank.
