Scales and Tails
Bringing home a new fish or coral is exciting, but can be stressful for the animal. Temperature, alkalinity, and salinity (just to name a few) are reasons that your acclimation procedure is vital to the survival of your new livestock.
After 1 hour it is safe to add the new animals to your aquarium. Never reuse the shipping or acclimation water, it should be discarded.
