Drip acclimate for 60-90 mins and chances of survival go up exponentially. It's really easy too.

Just buy yourself 4-5 feet of airline tubing (get silicone tubing and not vinyl) and simply tie a loose knot in it. Once the syphon is started, tighten or loosen the knot to adjust the flow to a moderate drip

+1 on drip. I drip all my fish for atleast an hour to two hours. Fish can get stressed very easily (especially gobies). I know because ive lost a few myself. I stopped acclimating new corals and have not lost any because of it.

+1 to the last 2 comments. you'll notice an obvious improvement in a fishs overall look and behavior when added to a dt if they are properly drip acclimated. with the royal gramma we just recently bought, I was a bit rushed for time because I had to leave for work, so I only drip acclimated him for 15 minutes, it took him until the next morning to actually be back to 100%.

I usually drip mine for two hours or more, also I would raise your salinity to 1.026 but slowly over a couple of days
