Introducing new frags

Looking for ideas on introducing new frags/corals to my tank. What do you guys do? I just learned of the hydrogen peroxide method. Seem to work so far. Any other methods?

I use coral dip and examine for pests before I introduce new frags/colonies.

I don't mind the pests.. Most of them seem to b on the good side. It's the 3 million types of algae that show up

Some of the pest will eat your coral. Doping it will kill any coral eating pest

True. At first I liked all the unknowns of adding new corals.. Now I think I learned with all the algaes I've introduced. I can't seem to fight them off!!

IMO algae is a natural part of the ecosystem. Just got to keep it under control.

Add one part saltwater. One part h202. Drop frags in. I've let leathers and mushrooms sit in the cup for 4 minutes. Sps' 1 minute or less.. Might b able to go longer. But you will see bubbling. Toothbrush any seen algae. And drop frag in the tank. Within a day or two the frag will be opening up like normal. I had a finger leather 100% covered in hair algae. And not extending... Scrubbed the crap out of it and let it soak for 4-5 minutes. The next day it was pretty much yelling thank you!!

H202 does kill all one cell organisms . So any copepod or shrimp on the frag will die
