Do it right?

I have a question for you guys. When you buy new coral what do you do to make sure you don't introduce parasites or other diseases to you Display Tank. What kind of dip do you use and do you quarantine corals and invertebrates? Thank you.

I dip all corals in revive and have had no issues. I also inspect frags after I dip them to make sure I got anything and don't notice any visible buggers

I did more research over the weekend on internet and seems like more people like to dip Corals in Bayer solution over Rx or other staff. Do you guys have any experience with it? And if Yes where exactly I can buy it and what? I have RX Coral Dip by Sachem and Lugol solution but all that staff is pretty old < did not realize that RX has expiration date 6/13 >. So I need buy something fresh. Please let me know. Thanks.
