for those of you advocating drip acclimation.

fyi- once you open the bag it offgases the co2, the ph rises and at that point any ammonia becomes toxic. this is of course more or less imprtant depending on the condition of the water in the bags, but the only time drip acclimation makes any sense whatsoever IMO is if the salinity of the water in the bag is signifigantly less than your tank water, and even then I think a longer slime acclimation will work just fine

otherwise, get those poor animals out of that dirty water immediately after floating to temp
