Acclimation Guide

This guide is to ensure you coral stays alive. Our Livestock Guarantee includes all steps except Step 4 as it is an optional step. Improper use of your chosen coral dip may damage or even kill the coral. 

Step 1: Turn OFF Aquarium Lights

Step 2: Empty bagged coral into a bucket or slightly larger container 

Step 3: Add 1/2 cup of Aquarium Water every 3 minutes until 3/4 of the container is full. Empty half of the water keeping coral full submerged then repeat once more adding 1/2 cups until reaching the 3/4 mark of the container again.
