I have looked at 3 different web pages and I have decided that I am going to float the bag for 20 minutes then add a cup of aqarium water veary slowly then remove a cup of aqarium water. I will wait a little and repeat this proses until I decide to pour the bag in. does this sound good.

Most experienced octo keepers on this website prefer the drip acclimation method. Have a look at this thread:

acclimation

Seach on acclimation and read the advice - it's important not to rush things.

It really is too bad that you didn't read and assimilate the pages of information Colin, Nancy, and others have so carefully written. This reeks of a "rush project", not at all what we recommend.
