ReefCleaners Acclimation

I'm getting a large ReefCleaners shipment in at about 4:00 today. I saw on the website that they recommended just putting the bag in the tank for 15 minutes and then putting the animals in. Should I do the drip acclimation? I'm just not sure they will cover deaths if I do that.

I had a large order and I did their acclimation and didn't lose anything. My emerald crab is big and healthy, snails perfect. U should be fine.

Cool I drip acclimated a pair of free hermits I got from the LFS a few days ago and they are fine (you got one crab per fish, maximum 2. Great deal)

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

Awesome. I paid $54 for it, with free shipping. Awesome deal, and the owner periodically was emailing me about it, since I ordered it right before Irene (it can't be that bad, can it? Famous last words...) and we agreed on a date to ship. Then he gave me a 10 percent off coupon for the order (but I was already using the 10percent one on the homepage) maybe I will use it for another order. The owner seemed very friendly and had great customer support. If it arrives well, I will definitely order from them again

I just made a 2nd order through them. John is great and on top of everything. Also, check out their base rock, it's very nice!!!

John goes out of his way to make the customer happy. I've emailed him abotu rock and macro algae and he's always gotten back to me within a short amount of time. i was thinking I needed all this crazy macro algae for my refugium but he told me nope, just the basics and saved me a bunch of money. Thats a sign of a proper business, not just selling for the sake of making a buck.

Thats why I keep going back and recommend them every chance I get.

If you ordered the crew for your tank size though, youre gonna be really surprised at the count of the crew. It's always like double what it should be. Youre gonna have snail and crabs galore!

Nice. Glad you took my advice. You'll understand when your order arrives. LOL You can always order more as your tank establishes itself.

I was planning on naming my pair of Hermits as they have characteristics but I guess that won't work with 11 new ones LOL
