Ahh your a floater! LOL I used to float, but now that I have the drip line I am hooked!

Dripping is for wussies..... ;)

 

If you drip, without a heater, your causing temp fluctuation.... Bad.

If you're livestock has been shipped, you want it out of the shipped water as fast as possible, due to low ph.

 

If your stuff came from a store, you want as little "out of tank" time as possible.

Just makes sense to me.

 

 

- Float bag.

- Remove 50% of bag water.

- Add an equal portion of tank water.

- Repeat step's 2 and 3.

- Dip coral's and check for bad hitcher's...

- Set livestock in tank...

 

NEVER let your livestock touch air.

I've read a number of studies that show,

if livestock touches air, it's chances of long term survial drop to 50/50.

 

If I could find the link, I would post it. B)

I bag acclimate. Does it matter which way it is done? Just asking....

It just depends. Dripping is better, it's a more gentle process. It just takes longer. So where I would drip acclimate something from liveaquaria, I didn't want the clown sitting in bad water for longer than he needed. Plus clowns are pretty hardy and can adapt easier than other, more delicate fish.

 

Really as long as you have a method that gives them a gentle acclimating to the new water you'll be fine :)

 

It's "Zaptino"... :huh:

It's nice, are you going to move forward with that pm I sent you yesterday or should I still be expecting an email? I know you said you'd check it out B)

I'm gonna move on the PM'd suggestion....

 

BUT, I want you to make me a sig, anyway.

I'll send you the images, as soon as I can decide what I wanna use.

(Or, want you to use, for that matter..) :happy:

Honestly the frogspawn looks gorgeous.

Nice! That's what mine looks like in the morning/afternoon when Lights come on. (My tank's morning is at 1PM as I work late and don't want the lights to only be on when I am not home)

 

Nice! Must Post Pics when fully extended, mine only took about 30 minutes to decide he was going to open up.

Wow that frogspawn is beautiful. Is it a different type than the normal frogspawn? I've never seen one like that!

 

Looks like we're back on track from lounge to aquarium talk. :D

Thanks! :) I definitely will do a full shot hopefully this evening. And even more hopefully with clowns in it.

It's a supercolor Australian frogspawn. And I can say without a doubt it's brighter than any frogspawn I've ever seen. :)

 

And not for long it's back on track! :P

If I have anything to do with it they will, so help me God.

 

If they don't take to it I'll photoshop them into a picture of the frogspawn and tape it to the glass.

I've been thinking I will have to do that, mine look at it but won't go near it that I've seen.

 

Email me a copy of the pic if you do make one! LOL ;)

It might not work because they are different species. :(

 

I took some screen caps of clowns hosting though, maybe these will help:
