Acclimating Fish and Corals: How Drip Acclimation Ensures a Safe Transition Into Your Aquarium
https://mdshop.us/Drip-Acclimation Simply moving a fish or coral from one tank to another causes an internal stress response, so proper slow drip acclimation into your aquarium is crucial to relieve these stress symptoms as quickly as possible.
This \"drip method\" of acclimation works whether introducing fish directly to your reef or a quarantine tank. It should also be noted that this method is not only for fishâ€”corals and especially invertebrates should also be acclimated properly.
The drip acclimation method is designed to slowly replace bag water with your aquarium water, which eliminates rapid changes in salinity, pH and temperature.
As with most things in reefkeeping, nothing good comes from rushing!
