Here is our guide to acclimatising new corals or inverts. Acclimatising is a must in order to allow the new item to adjust to your own water parameters and salinity. Simply placing your new items into your tank can cause them to have a tank shock and can severely reduce their lifespan. We recommend the below procedure if you've collected the items or had them posted to you.
1. Reduce the lighting to below 30 percent intensity or off completely 2. Float the sealed bag for approx 15 mins in your tank to allow water temperature to match 3. Cut the bag open and clip the bag to the side of your tank so it cant float away 4. Add 1/2 a cup of tank water to the bag and continue to do this for approx half an hour. 5. Once the bag is almost full carefully empty at least half the water and throw that away. Continue to add 1/2 cup for again to the bag for another 15 to 20 mins 6. Now that the bag is full again, remove most of the water and net the item out of the bag and place into your aquarium. 7. Remove the bag from your tank and disregard the bags water, DO NOT put the bagged water back into your tank. 8. Enjoy your new items in your tank
Note : corals will take a while to adjust to your lighting schedule and intensity so keep the lights low for a few hours before putting them back onto their normal schedule.
