You should always do a drip acclimation for marine fish. Most legs will keep their tanks in the 1.015-1.017 range in sg
and most home aquarists keep them in the 1.023-1.026 range. A swing in salinity can severely stress or even kill a fish, it's also better to add the fish with the lights off and leave them off for the rest of the day.
