Acclimating Your Corals

It will take about 45 minutes to complete the process. We suggest the slow transition procedure in effort to maintain specimens in a good healthy condition.

1. Equalize the temperature of your bags with your tank temperature by floating the closed shipping bag for about 15 minutes in your tank. Make sure to turn off the aquarium lighting system.

2. Once the temperature has equalized, open the shipping bag, keep it floating in the tank.

3. Replace the water slowly in the shipping bag with the water in the aquarium. 
   *How much water should be added at a time? As a rule of thumb: 1/8 the volume of the shipping bag.

4. Repeat adding water every 3 minutes until the bag is almost full.

5. When the shipping bag has been mixed with half shipping water and half aquarium water move to step 6.

6. Take half of the water out of the shipping bag, discard it, and don't dump it back into the tank.

7. Repeat adding water every 3 minutes until the bag is almost full.

8. Gently take the coral out of the bag and into the aquarium. Never dump the remaining water in your aquarium.
