So, just dip them quickly or let them sit? And then just add them to the tank afterwards? I found a bristleworm on my last coral, so this might be something I'd like to do in the future.

You let them sit in there for a while I just follow the instruction on the bottle and it works wonder.

Usually I do 20 min or so with a small powerhead agitating the water. Give it a good final swish to remove any dead things & a quick rinse in a container with tank water & bobs your uncle.

If its a small enough frag I might just swish it on the bag for a few mins rather than using a power head. An acro frag will have fewer hiding spots for hitchhikers. Use your judgement.

the 20 corals that are in my 25 gallon tank have all just been put right in the tank no temp alc or anything. I really see it as unnecessary beings all my corals open up in about 5mins or so of being put in the water and iv never had anything die on me that wasn't due to a fish/invert.

I let mine float for 15-20 min to adjust to the temp only because when have brought all of mine home it has either been snowing or could have. Just didn't want to shock them.

The only corals I acclimate are SPS. I do this by standing them out of water for 10 minutes...... That's all. They then slime up when I put them in the tank and done.

Once heard it compared to when the tide goes out at sea and they are sticking out of the water.
