I try to go atleast 45 minutes if not an hour. Really depends on the sensitivity of the inhabitant youre drip acclimating. For instance inverts need to drip for longer. Or if its a fairly sensitive fish.

I just cleaned out the old 20g. Dam. It was nasty. I didn't use any of the old sand. And when I first started the tank I remember grabbing sand from the bay and mixing it in. I had found a few of these in the water because stupid me did what I did. http://youtu.be/7pMnJ8N6T2s
But I made sure nothing made its way back into the new tank. Fingers crossed. Everyone looks fine. So glad I got them out of that tank. They must feel so much better in the 135g. Till tomorrow.
