Hi all bros, as we all known, drip acclimation is one of the best method of acclimating new LS but lot of us are put off by the steps involved. I have come up with a very draft and simple method of doing it. It is still very much in theory but I believe it will work (gravity and equalization of water pressure shall make sure it did). The key idea is to put a 1.5l (or smaller) coke plastic water bottle with neck cut off (filled with tank water) and with a few holes at the bottom and place it in a tubberware/ pail/ small container which hold the LS and LFS water. The tank water shall slowing flow (drip) through the hole at the base of the water bottle into the tubberware until the water level equal out (if my physic teach teaches me the right knowledge). The advantage of doing drip acclimation this way is that we can just set up with easily available thingy and forget about it till the water level out. It is also easier to pour away the mixed water and top up the water bottle with more tank water (if you want to do a longer acclimation process). Please let me know what you guys think about this. I shall try this out when I am back to SG end of next week and hopefully it works.
