Hey SeaMonkey,

Actually some people believe acculmation can be harmful to some animals. They only float for temperture adjustment.

Their belief is that CO2 builds up in the water in the bag. Thus the pH is dropped some times quite a bit. When you open up the bag and mix in the new water the pH can change by quite a lot as the CO2 is released. Therefore they just move the fish to the tank when they open the bag. They will get a large, quick shift in water conditions anyway.

Not saying this is what I believe, just something believed by others. Some very good fish people.
