Ok got it! Since I just started and had no clue what I was getting into, I have no fish. I'll only have a few since I only have a 20g tank, but with the 20g tank will I need a quarantine tank or possibly look at the 20g as later being a quarantine tank for the 55g I plan on saving up for?

I recommend quarantine for all new fish, treating fish in the main tank can be problematic and cause plenty of collateral damage.

I drip everything, but I don't think you will experience problems adding 1/2 cup every 5-10 minutes untill the bag is full, empty 1/2 the water from the bag and start doing it again, next time the bag is full you vcan add the coral.
