Hi

I was thinking about getting a cuttle from NY aquatics, and I wanted to get get the baby cuttles they sell. How should I go about acclimating them to my tank? Should i just do a 3-hour drip acclimation?:confused:

with shipping from NY to Cali your better off getting the eggs not the hatchlings. The babies don't ship well at all.

As for acclimation a regular 2-3 hour drip is good.

I hate to do it, but I disagree.
Hatchlings have shipped well for me from SF to all over the US. Truthfully, 2-3 monthers ship pretty well too. I also disagree about the longer acclimations - 30 minutes tops. :biggrin2:

oops, that's another topic for the common misconception thread. When I tried cuttles last year, that's what I was told time and time again.
