Part 3: Acclimating Your New Jellyfish Opening sequence.

“It’s the moment you’ve been waiting for! Your tank is cycled and you’ve placed your very first order for jellyfish! Now wait one business day for delivery…”

“In the meantime, why don’t you double check to be sure your system water is suitable for new friends?”

“Your pH checks out.”

“Oh no, looks like your salinity is a little too high. You’ll need to bring it down by adding reverse osmosis or distilled water.”

“You can add freshwater to two places in your tank: the main viewing area or the sump.”

“NEVER add freshwater into your filter box.”

“This can kill all of the tiny bacteria you’ve worked so hard to grow!”

“Excellent, it looks like your tank is ready for jellies.”

“Well what are you waiting for? Let’s get them into their new home!”

“Don’t forget to take a look in the bag first to make sure they arrived safely.”

“Cut the bag below the metal bracket, then pull the tab to release the rubber band—No, no, no! Didn’t you read the sticker on the box?”

“You have to acclimate them first.”

“Take out a little water and slowly place the bag in your tank to float for 15 minutes to acclimate them to the water temperature.”

“Gently transfer your jellies with a ladle into a small cup full of water from the bag.”

“Carefully perform small water changes in the cup every 20 minutes for one hour to acclimate them to your tank’s water chemistry.”

“Now your jellies are ready to be released into your tank. Just look at those little guys go.”
