I have a couple of fish, a tube coral and a pair of shrimp coming in on Friday. I'm going to QT
the fish and put the coral and shrimp into the main all after acclimation.
will be a 15g tank with a 30g garbage can for a sump. The water will be 20g from my main and 15g of new aged (lol) saltwater.
This will be my first time using a drip acclimation. I'm trying to be as prepared as I can for the event. What I figure I'll need are 3 buckets. One for the fish, one for the coral and one for the shrimp. The shrimp and coral will feed from the main and the fish will feed from QT
. In those buckets I'll need what? A piece of airline tubing, heater and ? anything else? About how long should the process take for each animal? I haven't lost anything to the shot-glass method
So hopefully I'll maintain my track record with this better method.
Any words of wisdom before these guys get here?
