Many people so it different ways, some let coral grow a little on frag rack, some just put on rock, some glue rock down, some use apoxe lol sorry, you can just put on rock but it make get knocked over so superglue gel is a good idea

I just drip acclimate mine in a bucket for 10-20 minutes, hasn't failed me yet though I haven't dealt with anything too delicate.

Be smart,acclimate it with some of your tank water with a coral dip mixed with it.On fish you have to worry about ick,on corals all kinds of bad things,such as flatworms.
