dont buy any drip acclimating product, all you need is some airline tube, start the siphon, tie a knot, the tighter the knot the less drops, the looser the knot the more drops. The more weaker fish/invertebrate should use a tight knot (1-2 drips per second) and stronger fish/invertebrate could use a looser know (3-4) but 1-2 is still recommended for all fish and corals
