Drip acclimation time


Recommended Posts

The last group of cherries I received had a TDS of close to 300 in the baggie, while my tank is around 146. Since the numbers were so far apart, I drip acclimated down to the tank TDS over the course of 24 hours. Is this too extreme of a change? The shrimp are fine I'm wondering the protocol for such an extreme change in parameters.

I always drip acclimate between 2-3 hours. I never measure the water within the bag I receive, simply because the numbers can be skewed. Simply because the amount of waste that could be produced increasing the TDS, even though when initially shipping the water could of been spot on.
