We want you to be satisfied with your purchase. To insure the least stress and longest life for your shark please follow this basic acclimation procedure:
Upon arrival of your new shark, you should take the bag & place it in a tub or a bucket then cut it open . then place an air stone in the tub for aeration . Take a small line tubing & tie a knot in it, then slowly start to drip your aquarium water into the bucket until the water mixture is 50/50. Then after one hour place the shark into your aquarium.
Your salinity should be 1.024 to 1.026 , temperature should not exceed 78 degrees , P.H. 8.3., and no residual copper from prior tank treaments (and remember Sharks and copper don’t mix). You should not have any ammonia or nitrite present when acclimating Sharks !!! Take your time, Don’t Rush and you will enjoy your shark for a long time.
