Ok, do I need to add any supplements to the water?

I use the lfs saltwater for water changes, so I don't know if it is any good or not, I top off with ro/di.

Also is it a good idea to use coral dip before I put the corals into my tank?

I would hold on the supplements. Never add anything you can't test for. Coral dip is a good precaution, but I don't do it as I don't want to stress the coral any more than necessary. That's just my opinion. I will dip a coral if it shows signs of parasites.

Ok thanks for the info I appreciate it,

One more question, what's the best way to acclimatize soft corals. The same way as you would with fish, drip method?
