I drip acclimate everything. Not sure if it's 100% necessary but it's so easy and I figure rather safe than sorry.

Agree with the drip acclimation. It works.

Place the coral and water in a bucket or tub that has some room for more water in it. Use a piece of airline tubing that can run from in your tank to the tub. Much like siphoning water out of your tank, get a siphon going in the airline tubing, but tie a knot in it to allow just a slow drip into the coral's tub. After 30-60 minutes, remove the coral and place into the tank.
