Dear R2R family, those that know my posts and previous threads are familiar with my set 45 JBJ AIO. i have a shipment coming from saltwaterfish.com on July 6th and i am concerned about acclimation. i have had success with drip but have not tried float method. I am getting a dwarf fuzzy lion and a frog fish. i can move things around if I have to trying to focus on the frog fish ik they tend to be more delicate. okay, family what should I do? drip method or float? please let me know I have been reading watching videos my eye balls are about to pop from their sockets. I need everyone's true opinion for optimal success.
God bless to all!

Whatever method you use you want to match the water they came in with your water. I find it easier to set up my QT tank with the same salinity as the fish came in from the vendor, then raise it over a weeks time. to what my display is. I float the bag to get temp to match then put the fish in the QT tank
