Corals/Anenomes

A Friend of ours is giving us a couple of frags of his corals. I was wondering if there was something I should be doing to it before putting it into our tank. I know the procedure for acclimating it, but I'm not sure if it should be dipped or cleaned before putting into ours?

i dip my corals in coral rx before adding to my tank. Takes about 10 min and helps get off any nuisance pests like flatworms and/or some nudibranchs.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
