Hello all! First off let me say I am in the path of hurricane Ivan. I don't have a generator, but I did buy two battery powered air pumps (one for my main 60 gallon and one for the quarantine). So, I am a little nervous about that. And to make matters worse, my starfish (Echinaster sp.)
that I was supposed to get about a week ago, just arrived today! So.... I am currently dripping the star to my main tank. My concern is the star being exposed to air. I was very careful in placing it in the bucket, but it keeps crawling up to the water's surface and sticking it's arms out of the water. I moved it to the center of the bucket a couple times, but it has other ideas in mind.
Should I be concerned?
Also, I am planning on dripping for about 4 hours. Should this be ok?
