Coral Placement-New Lights

I just received my new MH from Inreef.com. I purchased a complete retrofit keep with two 250W 12K coralvue bulb and 2 electronic ballast. I'm currently using CSL 4x65 hood. I'm planning on using all the lights on my 72box. My question is, with all the new light, should I move some of my corals around; relocate them? I plan to acclimate the new light for the first week or so. Below is a list of corals I currently have. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Pulsating Xenia-currently High
Monipora-High
Green star polyps-currently Low
Hammer Coral-Mid
Trumpets-Mid
Bubble Coral-High
Toadstool Leather-High
Ricordia-Low
2 Button Polyps-One High the other Low

Thanks.

You may look at doing more than a week, I would suggest 2-3. No I don't think you need to rearrange, just acclimate
