Tip of the Day – 11/18/2011


When acclimating a new fish, it is a good idea to turn out the lights prior to its introduction to the aquarium. The dark tank will help reduce the stress of the new environment and the fish will instinctively make its way to the safety of the live rock. Additionally, doing all of this with the lights out will prevent other fish from harassing the new resident as soon as it hits the water. Unfortunately, when the lights turn back on, the fish may be harassed the minute it ventures out into the open.
