Fancy guppies acclimation

A question to those of you who have purchased and acclimated Fancy Guppies into your tanks:

Have you found them particularly difficult to acclimate?
Or have you found them not adjust well after acclimating them to your tank?

I've never had a problem of acclimating fish. No matter where I get my new fish from I always drip acclimate them to my water. May take a couple hours or more, but never had a problem with doing it that way.

I'm inexperienced, so I never knew they were supposed to be a problem. I bought 4 fancies about a month ago and they're happy as little clams.

Thank you for the the responses. I've just read that they are fragile little guys and I have read some pretty sad stories about them not acclimating well.

Just wanted to see some perspective from people who have actually purchased them and put them in their tanks. I'm thinking about getting a couple for my mom's tank.
