Drip Acclimation Water Temp

How do you keep the water at a steady temperature when using drop acclimation method I come to find that the temperature drops about 5 to 10 degress? Any ideas?

Unless invertebrates, I drip by leaving the airline either partial or full stream which should keep a reasonable temperature. Floating the bag in the aquarium for 10minutes prior to should also help.

understood but when acclimating for more than 45 minutes seem the temp starts to drop. Sounds like a plan.

I`ve heard of folks placing a heating blanket under the bucket.

A small reptile under-tank heater would be great under a bucket.

It also helps to periodically remove some of the water during the drip process. The smaller the water volume the easier the water being dripped in helps to sustain the temperature.
