Drip Acclimation Kits

Product Description

Drip acclimation kits are essential to proper acclimation of freshwater shrimp or fish. It is important to acclimate shrimp slowly to their new aquarium over the course of a couple hours. Drip acclimation kits are a must have for hobbyist that want to properly acclimate shrimp or fish. 

Included: 

  • 1 - water flow valve
  • 1 - plastic spring clamp
  • 1 - 3 ft piece of airline tubing

Proper Acclimation: 

  • Do not float breather bags in the aquarium
  • Residue is usually present on the bags which can be toxic to an aquarium
  • Breather bags in water actually can suffocate your shrimp or fish if left for extended period of time
  • Place bag in clean container then float 
  • After 30 min to 1 hour, remove shrimp or fish from bag and place in a container. 
  • Drip 1 drop of tank water per second into the container using the acclimation kit
  • Once there is double the water that you had originally began with, the shrimp or fish are ready for their new home

Note: If there are dead shrimp or fish in the bag, it is important to get the live ones out of the bag and out of the old water as soon as possible. In this event, acclimation can actually cause more harm. You need to insure the temperature of the aquarium and bag are similar. Once confirmed, it is okay to add the shrimp or fish to the aquarium.

Chili rasbora 🌶

Fantastic service. Fish delivered quickly and all healthy. Drip acclimated and they are now thriving. Would 1000% recommend and will do business again.

Works as expected

Works exactly how I thought it would. Can take a little trial and error to get the drip just right but once you do, no problem. I got a different color than the picture but that doesn't matter to me, I guess it could to some people. I had a nice steady drip for hours.

Drip Acclimation Kit

The flow control valve is definitely easier to regulate drip than adjusting a knot in air line tubing. The only complaint is how short the tubing that came with the kit was. I had to use longer tubing to reach from my tank to the bucket I used for acclimation, but since that problem is specific to my setup I am not letting it affect how many stars I give. All in all, very handy.

Perfect Acclimation!

I used this to acclimate my Amano Shrimp and it worked perfectly! Using this to acclimate my other freshwater fish and it works for them as well!

Drip kit & red cherry shrimp!

Everyone came in healthy and happy! Even had a few extra and one gave birth while acclimating! They’re now all safely and happily exploring the tank! Thanks again!
