Coral acclimation??

I got a new very large colony of corky sea finger. So large in fact that the bag does not fit in the aquarium..... How do I go about acclimating this coral??

Drip acclimation using some airline and tie 2 knots in the line to acclimate slowly.

I wouldn't recommend just tossing any coral in.

That is the usual advice, but it won't fit into his display...let alone a container to drip acclimate into.

I set mine outside the tank in the bag and drip from the tank into the bag. No need to put it in a whole seperate container especially if it doesn't fit lol

Very nice! I almost always just use the bag the piece comes in to acclimate.

$20?! That's a small frag price around me!
