tip for setting up drip for acclimating
go to the lfs
and get a piece of rigid air line that is about 18" long. the thin kind. make sure that a piece of flexible air line will fit snug over the end. now go home and find a nice juice glass or other small glass that has a diameter of about 2". now set your toaster to the darkest setting and turn on. gently heat the rigid tubing at midway over the toaster until the tubing gets soft. bend tube carefully around glass forming a U shape. it may take a couple tries and it doesnt need to be perfect. dont worry, if your careful the tube will not kink. now let cool. slip flexible air line over one end. make sure its snug and wont come loose. now hang the other end over and into the tank and TADA.
