Tip of the Day – 1/30/2011


Take extra time when acclimating shrimp and other crustaceans. Most invertebrates are very sensitive to changes in water parameters, especially salinity. If the difference in salinity is too great, or the shrimp hasn’t been acclimated properly, it will go into shock and die. The best way to acclimate these sensitive invertebrates is to drip acclimate them for at least an hour, but preferably longer.
