Coral Dipping and Dips

Coral Dipping and Dips

Dipping newly purchased coral is something that should be done from the very start of a marine tank.

Acclimatising stock, from the shop to your Aquarium.

Acclimatising stock, from the shop to your Aquarium.

First things first and often overlooked is making sure your stock is in good condition before you actually purchase it! Any good retailer should never sell stock that isnt ready to go and we pride ourselves on conditiong stock before it leaves us. if you are unsure about the health of something then simply do not buy it. If it is a known fussy feeder then ask to see it eat. If you are unfamiliar with a particular species then ask or research them. We have free to use wifi which is always handy but we are more than happy to talk you through requirements of a potential purchase.
