With my future stocking of anglefish, DG, mollies, and cories, would any of them need to be drip acclimated? Or just regular slowly add water?

Hey Ash,
No you dont need to drip acclimate. You can if you want to but not necessary. Some salt water fish and inverts you really do but asa general rule of thumb not with freshwater. This is mostly due to the extra water parameters you have to deal with with salt water.

Thx. I do know some fish are a little more fragile to changes, like GBR. I just wasn't sure if it would benefit to drip acclimate any of my planned stock.

None of those fish are sensitive fish, aside from maybe the cories depending on the species, they're all pretty hardy. It'd be better to do it, though they'll be fine without it.

Thx everyone! I'm just making sure I got all my ducks in a row before I finish cycling.
