DIY drip acclimate


Recommended Posts

I've used a Fluval Breeder Box to drip acclimate fish and shrimp before. I just drain it out first, pour in the fish bag and water then set it to a slow drip. Tank water slowly gets added and the fish/shrimp get a slow, gradually changeover. I tend to siphon out half of the water in the breeder box when it gets close to flowing into the tank so the bagged water doesn't contaminate the tank. Once I'm comfortable the fish/shrimp are acclimated I scoop them out and then dump the water in the breeder box down the drain.
