I do a 2 hour drip for fish minumum. You don't really have to drip acclimate corals, I think temp acclimating is fine IME.

Dipping your corals is a good idea though, takes abotu 10 min and some coral dip. I use coralrx myself.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

He is a pic. I only added a few cups of water every now and then because I only have one drip and I figured I would use that for the fish. Thank you so much everyone for your advice! I really appreciate it!

Just a quick question.... How long do you think I should leave the lights out? The reason why i ask is because the light hasn't been on all day for my corals.
