Acclimating like an MD....

So I was cleaning my house before going back to school and I stumbled on an old IV that somehow was in a box in my garage. My grandfather was a doctor and I guess he gave this to us when he moved back to Louisiana.

I bought some blonde OEBT (or so I hope, check my 12 gallon long journal if you wanna see ) and needed to acclimate. So what did I do?

Yep, used the IV. I must say it is really easy to acclimate with IV because you can control the drip rate however you like!

Just thought I would share. Anyone with a spare IV laying around, it's a great tool for acclimating shrimp or fish!

A clever idea! I don't have any of those lying around but it's fun using things in a way they're not typically used.
