Moving Corals

I am interested in moving my corkscrew gorgonian with attached african blue hornet Zoo's from my 29 gallon tank with LED's to my 75 gallon tank with power compacts. Is there an easy way to acclimate them to the new tank or is it not worth it? Thanks in advance.

I am planning on moving the whole piece from 29 to the 75. So should I put the coral in a bowl with water from the 29 and slowly acclimate by adding water from the 75.
