Acclimatizing - Drip Method

Recently I have advised some new hobbyist about the way they should be acclimatizing their newly purchased shrimps or to even shift shrimps from tank to tank with slightly different parameter.. So I shall give a better detail about how it should be done..

Firstly, you need to put those newly purchased shrimps into a container and placed it below the tank where the shrimps will be staying..

(for the video, I am running an overflow system.. So the water parameter between the top tank and the bottom tank are the same..)

Next, give the tube a little siphon to start the flow of the water (gravity of water flow from top to bottom) and tweak the valve until its about 1 drop per second..

Lastly, just clip it to the container where the shrimps are at.. Let it drip for an hour or more.. (Some hobbyist just let it drip overnight.. but its your choice.. but remember not to flood your room or empty your tank.. haha)

Here it goes... Hope this helps...
