Q11232 - FAQ: I have read your article about dipping corals. This process seems to skip the whole process of acclimating the coral. Does one acclimate them first in a separate container and after they are acclimated to the aquarium water, then do the procedure?

Hello and thank you for your inquiry.

Many people do not acclimate corals at all to their new tank.  Many will simply pull the coral out of the existing water, dip and place either in a quarantine tank or display tank.

If you would prefer to acclimate the coral to temperature and salinity, you would do it similarily to acclimating other invertibrate livestock prior to dipping the coral.

If there is anything else we can do for you please let us know.
