FISH & INVERTEBRATE  ACCLIMATION  INSTRUCTIONS

 How to acclimate saltwater invertebrates when you buy saltwater snails, peppermint shrimp, astrea snails, emerald crabs etc. at RUSALTY.

 Immediately place bag in aquarium to acclimate animals to your water temperature. Then remove animals asap from bag and just add only the fish/snail etc. to your aquarium. SOME SNAILS ARE PACKED WITHOUT WATER. SHIPPING THEM IN THIS MANNER ENSURES A BETTER SURVIVAL RATE.  ACCLIMATE THEM INTO YOUR TANK ASAP. SNAILS REMAIN DORMANT UNTIL THEY ARE IN WATER. 

 

CERITH SNAILS & NASSARIUS SNAILS:

 NASSARIUS SNAILS  MAY LAY DORMANT FOR ½ -  1 HOUR TIME BEFORE MOVING. THEY ARE NOT DEAD. CERITH SNAILS MOVE VERY LITTLE & MINUTELY, MAKING IT DIFFICULT TO SEE MOVEMENT.  SNAILS WILL ALSO BURY THEMSELVES  & DISAPPEAR INTO YOUR SUBSTRATE & ROCKS. PLEASE CONTACT US WITHIN 2 HRS. TIME AFTER DELIVERY WITH ANY CONCERNS

 

ASTREA & STAR SNAILS: BE SURE TO PLACE THESE SNAILS  RIGHT SIDE UP IN YOUR TANK ASAP. THEY CANNOT TURN THEMSELVES UPRIGHT & WILL DIE IF LEFT UPSIDE DOWN.

 

NOTE:  MAKE SURE YOU PLACE SNAILS IN YOUR SAND/SUBSTRATE. THEY MAY NOT MOVE IF PLACED IN A BOWL/CONTAINER SINCE THEY WILL SENSE THAT THE CONTAINER IS A “HOSTILE” ENVIRONMENT
