I have a hypostomus I want to put in my 2500 gallon pond. The temp in the pond is about 60 degrees farenheit. Should I wait until it is around 68-70? His aquarium is about 76-78 degrees.

Note: Mods, if this should be posted in the pond or catfish forum, please move. Thanks.

I agree with Marcos.

If you could keep it in a deferent container, for say 3-5 days, and bring the temp down slowly (1˚C a day) and add some pond water to the container, in small amounts each day, it would greatly decrees the chance of death due to shock.

Thanks for the help guys. 20 celcius=68 farenheit so only 8 more degrees to go and then he should be good. I also plan on acclimating him for a 30-60 mintue period by adding pond water to the bag he is in.
