Slow temperature acclimation: 45 – 60 min
Dripping is the preferred method of acclimation for all inverts. Most invertebrates are best with a 1 hour drip. More sensitive invertebrates like starfish and urchins should be dripped for longer.
The AccuDrip by Innovatiove Marine is an excellent, affordable, acclimation tool to make dripping marine inhabitants easy and pain free.
Notes for Success:
- Make sure there is no significant change in water temperature while acclimating.
- They are not tolerant of high nitrates
- They are not tolerant of copper medications
- They are not tolerant of large changes in water chemistry
