Check the salinity of the water in the bag. That will give you an idea of how long you need to acclimate for. I do 2 hrs at 1 drop/sec. Then I do an additional hour for every 0.001 difference at 2 drops/sec. Be sure to equalize the temperature every 30 mins if the bag isn't floating in the tank/sump.

well, my schrimp did die and was getting eaten pretty good by my hermits when i woke up. i went out and purchased two more cleaners and they are doing great. from what i was told i make two mistakes;

1. i have read in numerous articles that aquarium schrimps will suffer much less stress if they are in pairs.
2. my acclimation the second time around was much slower at 3 hours as compared to the 25 min' s like the first time around.

a good newbie lessen learned by me
