Acclimating Plants

Question for those who have fuges, do you acclimate you plants or do you just toss them in. It was just a wierd thought I had and I never really read anything about it.

Good question. I've never really heard or read anything about it. Where I work, we just put them right in after floating. Temp acclimation should be practiced on anything that's alive...except live rock. That don't float

We, as a people, know so much more about outer space than we do about our own oceans. This lack of knowledge can very well spell the dangers that lay in wait for us.

The oceans surely would swallow us before a rock comes down to smite the planet of it's life.

yeah, as long as your salinity is in a good range, the difference from the water it came it won't matter. plants are alive, but very different from animals in terms of acclimation.
