Acclimating new corals to light

Just bought a colony of zoas, a hammer coral, zoa frag, mushroom and some other coral I'm not too sure if the name but will attach pictures. How should I acclimate to light and what would be the best light for them?
Right now I'm running my current LED's at 60%Click image for larger version

Start them on the bottom then after a couple days move them up. None of those corals are high light so I'd place them low to middle of the tank after a couple days

Thank you for the response! So I can put them on the sand for now? Even the hammer coral?

You can yes. What kind of lights do you have? You could also leave them and just dim the lights a bit then slowly ramp them back up.
