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.
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.
I have yet to use it! Just wanted to have it on hand for when I need it. I was told that Otos were a delicate fish and didn’t take well to changes in water temperatures, ph, etc. But so far they seem to be rather hardy and even eat foods that I was told that they wouldn’t. So haven’t felt inclined to use the Drip Acclimation kit yet.
I'm very pleased with this kit! Only problem I had was getting it started! I didn't want to suck on it and end up with a moutful of fish water! I found if I used a syringe (which fits in the end of the tube perfectly) to draw the water it takes right off! I love the little clap! I wish I could buy extras of them!
The drip kit worked well! The tube was flexible and not the cheap hard tubes at the big box stores.
Def a must have
A must have! It realy simplifies acclimating your shrimp once they arrive.
