Drip acclimation is a method used to gradually introduce aquatic animals, such as shrimp, snails, and fish, to their new tank environment after transport. It helps them adjust to the water parameters and temperature differences between the transport bag and the tank. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to drip acclimate your aquatic animals:

Step 1: Prepare the necessary materials

Clean bucket or container large enough 
Airline tubing
Air pump (optional but recommended)
Adjustable valve or knot (to regulate the flow of water) or get a abquatics drip kit
Clean, dechlorinated water (ideally matching the temperature and pH of your tank)


Step 2: Set up the drip acclimation system

Fill a clean bucket or container with the clean, dechlorinated water.
Attach one end of the airline tubing to an air pump (if using) and place the other end inside the bucket. Make sure it reaches the bottom of the container.

Step 3: Start the drip

Open the bag containing the aquatic animals and carefully pour the entire contents into the bucket, including the water from the transport bag.
Start a siphon by sucking on the free end of the airline tubing or use a siphon starter. This will initiate a slow drip of water into the bucket.

Step 4: Adjust the drip rate

Use an adjustable valve or tie a knot in the airline tubing to regulate the drip rate. Aim for approximately 2-4 drips per second.
The slow drip helps gradually mix the water in the bucket with the water from the transport bag, preventing any sudden changes in water parameters.

Step 5: Monitor the process

Keep an eye on the acclimation process and periodically test the water parameters in the bucket using a test kit. This helps ensure a smooth transition.
Depending on the sensitivity of the animals and the water parameters involved, the acclimation process may take anywhere from 30 minutes to a few hours.

Step 6: Adjust water volume if needed

If the water volume in the bucket becomes too high, you can remove some water and continue the drip acclimation process with fresh, dechlorinated water. Be cautious not to remove too much water, as it can lead to sudden changes in water parameters.

Step 7: Transfer the animals to the tank

Once the acclimation process is complete, gently net the aquatic animals from the bucket and transfer them to the tank. Avoid adding the water from the acclimation container to the tank to prevent any potential contamination.

Step 8: Dispose of the acclimation water

After transferring the animals, discard the acclimation water from the bucket. Do not pour it directly into any drains or natural bodies of water.
By following these steps, you can safely and gradually acclimate your shrimp, snails, and fish to their new tank environment after transport. Remember, it's important to monitor the process closely and make adjustments as necessary to ensure a smooth transition for your aquatic pets.

When ordering these shrimps, I hoped to get close to what was pictured. Unfortunately I can’t give a good review on these shrimp. I did order 4 and five turned up. 1 was clear and 1 was low grade red and 1 was yellow. The other 2 remaining shrimp are some kind of orange colour. When buying the colour you want and get something different isn’t a good start. Maybe other buyers have had some luck with the Sunkist shrimp turning up with the correct colour, but 2 out or 5 shrimp isn’t good quality or service.
