Helpful link - acclimation guide

So looking through saltwaterfish.com i found their guide to drip acclimate, granted there are some posted already but this one is a pictured slideshow that may be a bit more helpful for visual learners (like my self)

http://www.saltwaterfish.com/site_11_03/acclimation.php

if this needs to be moved feel free but thought it might be the best place for it.

While I'm sure the folks selling fish have waaaaay more experience with this than I do, I kind of question the idea of using the styrofoam shipping container as a acclimation "tank". Granted... it's going to keep heat loss down, but I'd sure be worried about chemicals from the styrofoam forming process leeching/washing into the water. I'm pretty sure those containers aren't sterilized or anything. Then again, maybe I'm just too paranoid!

You could also use a plastic tote with a small heater in it as well. On a side note, I like to turn off as many lights as possible when I open the shipping container.
