What is the drip rate? If it's very slow maybe let it drip faster.Drasi said:So I bought some red cherry shrimp from someone on aquabid, the TDS on the shrimp was in the 500's, my tanks TDS is 150. I've been drip acclimating them for almost 4 hours now, and we are just hitting about 370.... Should I worry about matching so much? I didnt expect that much of a gap.
Probably remove about half the water in their acclimation container and increase the rate to maybe 4 or 5 drops a secondDrasi said:I'm doing about a drip a second (which is what I've read to do).. I haven't removed water yet from the container they are in, I can certainly do that and increase the rate... and especially now that makes sense after so long. What would you recommend I increase to?
I've learned soooo much here, and I keep learning. This is a treasure trove of knowledge here! Thanks for your help!richiep said:Don't worry you'll learn especially here, don't hold back the questions
Yeah, but it works for you and you know what your doing Me, I have no idea other than the research I've done. Thanks for your advice!AJE said:What you're doing is probably better than me, I just get lazy and I assume it's fine because it's been fine 100 times before. Test everything!
