The correct was to acclimate coral

Could you please tell me the correct way to acclimate something? I will be getting some zoanthuis soon and I want to make sure it is introduced correctly. Thank you for your time.

Rachel

Here is a good guide for acclimation. It also breaks down specific animals so you know what you are in for. HTH

drip acclimation for 1-5 hours depending on the species. This involves taking a piece of airline hosing, running it from your main tank to the coral's bag, starting a siphon and getting a knot tied to accomplish a drip.
