Still waiting for mine here in Atlanta. On the truck yesterday for delivery, never showed up. Probably spent the night in a parking lot at 16 degrees. A sensible person would think delivery by 10:30 am would stick even if the shipment was delayed.... but... preparing for icicles.

In that case, I would put a couple gallons of display water in a bucket. Then match the salinity there. Once fish are in the bucket, acclimate to the display.

I use a device called "The AccliMate by Reef Gently.
You can't use the drip method in this situation, as discussed.

All I can do now is track my package on the tracker, but that sometimes fails, so I'm waiting
