What is Acclimation?
Acclimation is the process of slowly and gradually adjusting the water parameters of the water. This is important for new fish and aquaria to stay healthy and survive the transition. Furthermore, remember that different species of live goods will have varying levels of tolerance. This means that different methodologies are required to control the rate of change experienced during the acclimation process.
What is Drip Acclimation?
The drip method of acclimation, or drip acclimation, introduces aquarium water at a controlled rate of drops per second or longer if needed. This precision control greatly minimizes stress on new arrivals. Drip acclimation generally involves a siphon device and a method of regulating aquarium water entering the container housing new live goods.
You can introduce aquarium water at a rate of about 2-4 drips per second. In the past, drip acclimation devices were handmade and employed mostly by experienced reef aquarium hobbyists. However, this “advanced” technique of acclimation can be enjoyed by hobbyists of all levels thanks to the availability of convenient, commercial drip acclimation devices.
