• Saves fish through stress reduction and disease prevention
• Saves time using AccliMate's Advanced-Automated-Acclimation process
• Saves money & space by trapping, isolating & dipping -- all in one unit!

With our new, patent-pending automatic acclimation system, the process of acclimating is not only easier for you, but safer for the species. The AccliMate™ promotes species health and reduces potential loss by eliminating 'net stress.' The inner tank design allows all species to be transferred without using spine-catching nets. When the AccliMate™ is used to transport species directly from a live fish store, fish can be transported and acclimated in the same unit! Less handling means less stress which means healthier fish.

The AccliMate's™ easy-to-use, automated design now allows you to set it and walk away. The user regulated, dual siphon, Continuous Exchange System (CES) slowly replaces store water with your aquarium water. Unlike other methods of acclimation, that can cross contaminate your aquarium's water with up to 30% of fish store water, the AccliMate's™ CES process exchanges out -- almost all -- store water to minimize potential harm to your tank's eco system. The iron-grip suction cups not only allow quick and secure mounting of the AccliMate™ to the outside or inside of your aquarium, they can be positioned and re-positioned in a flash without scratch damage to acrylic or glass surfaces.

With its clear acrylic design and quick-sliding trap door/lid, the AccliMate™ also functions as an easy-to-use fish trap. Simply attach the provided release line to the sliding door, prime the AccliMate™ with appropriate bait, position it in the tank at the appropriate height for the fish being targeted, raise the trap door and you are ready. It's that easy! Catch shrimp, crabs and other species with ease compared to using home-made traps. To use as a bristle worm trap, just place the inner box upside down in the outer box. Drop in some bait and lower into the aquarium. The bristle worms will crawl in through the inner box drain holes to go after the bait. Once in, they're caught!

The AccliMate™ allows you to transport fish or other species right from your live fish store and, then acclimate them in the same unit! Just ask to have the fish (and store water) placed directly into the AccliMate™, close the AccliMate™ with the Velcro-secured sliding lid, and you're ready to go. By using the AccliMate™ to transport, there's one less transfer required and less stress on the fish or other species.
With the two tank design, the AccliMate™ allows for both in-tank isolation and out-of-tank quarantine. For in-tank isolation, the AccliMate's inner tank, with flow-through holes, can be secured to the inside walls of the aquarium using suction cups that are provided. The AccliMate's™ outer tank is ideal for use as a quarantine or medicating unit, which can be mounted to the aquarium's exterior or set on a table. Other uses include fresh water dipping, breeder pen, coral dipping, targeted feeding unit or taking to a frag swap!
Quality Construction
The AccliMate™ is constructed of durable, thermoformed (no glue!) clear acrylic for years of service. Each unit comes with industrial grade suction cups, clear 1/8" ID water exchange tubing and a micro control valve with variable drip-rate adjustment for acclimating various aquatic life. -- from the hardy critters to the most delicate animals.
