This is my acclimating set. All you need is about 5-6 ft of airline tubing with suction cups, a valve and a 2-3 gallon bucket. I have two of everything to use for acclimating corals/fish from two different stores at one time. Here's a how to guide from blue zoo aquatics: https://www.bluezooaquatics.com/acclimationguide.asp

Pretty much what I do. It's super easy and safe. Click image for larger version

In the thread it say to repeat two to three times... Do I repeat even if I'm only doing one fish?
