Acclimating Macroalgae


Is acclimating macroalgae any different than acclimating fish or corals?

Honistally I've never acclimated macro, but drip acclimating it sure won't hurt.

Like that??

of course....my coral acclimation process goes like this...

1. Float bags to temp
2. dip
3. place in tank

I quit doing the slowly acclimate to tank water thing about 6 months ago after hearing it is better to simply get them out of that nasty water they ship in as it is more of a shock to introduce oxygen to it than it is to simp;ly get them out of it. I havent lost anything so it seems to work

I dip corals then leave SPS coral out of the water for a few min then put them in.

I'm so bad when it comes to acclimation.

What about tasting it before dumping it in?

Sounds about as difficult as planting water hyacinths in a koi pond.
