Properly acclimating your newly arrived fish is key to making sure they adapt to their new aquarium quickly and successfully. Proper acclimation can make the difference between a thriving, healthy fish and one that struggles or gets sick after arrival. We have developed these acclimation procedures for your benefit, and failure to acclimate your fish or invertebrates according to these guidelines may void our guarantee.
Although we do our best to ensure your fish are healthy and thriving before shipping, we still strongly recommend quarantining ANY new arrival for at least 2 weeks in a dedicated quarantine tank. This will not only reduce the risk of introducing disease into your display tanks, it will also allow your new arrivals to recover from shipping and begin feeding in a stress-free environment.
