    We do not recommend drip acclimating corals. Good for fish, but not for corals. Corals acclimate much easier than fish.
    1) Get to temp by placing bags in a larger bag then clamping to rim of tank (should take around 10 to 15 minutes
    2) Cut bags and dump water and place frags into bucket/bowl
    3) Cup in water at intervals for 15 minutes
    4) Lightly blow off bases of frags with Turkey Baster as a way to inspect corals
    5) Place frags onto frag rack at bottom of Reef for a week or more for monitoring then place into proper locations depending on the type of coral (research placement)

    Hope this helps ;Joyful

    Got my box today! Everything looks absolutely great!!! Thanks again WWC , you guys are the best! I could hardly believe it when I saw my free frag.... I had been eyeing that specific coral for a week before the sale, but didn't see one during the sale itself, (I missed half of it though.) Anyhow, you guys couldn't have picked a better frag for us, particularly since we're a little bit country, and you sent us a John Deere Leptastrea! PERFECT!!! THANK YOU @WWC !!!

    i dont acclimate other than temp acclimation. after floating for 15 or so minutes, into the dip they go, rinse twice, into the tank.

    I just float for temp. I also leave all frags on the sandbed/frag rack on the bottom for a few days to let them acclimate to my lights.

    You may want to PM them if you haven't yet. They've been great about getting back to me even when the sale was going on.
