I just float them and toss them in, but then again, my tank is established. If you have a new system, this might be a bad thing, but then again, dripping or tossing in will not matter if your parameters are out of whack.

I mean if the salinity of the store matches you might be ok just temp acclimating. But I'd rather be safe than sorry and drip it.
