It is a good insurance policy. A lot of folks do not QT them, but there are also a lot of horror stories out there about wiping out a tank with a diseased specimen. If you have the means, it is a good idea.

Fort, do you dip your corals in Revive or Coral RX? I heard it was a good thing to do incase there are any flatworms or parasites. Also, can you dip anemone?

I have done lugols dips prior to adding to the DT in the past. It supposedly causes anything foreign to jump off the coral. It seemed to work as after the lugols dip I would see pods, etc in the bottom of the bucket. Not sure on nems. Never had one or researched that.
