Poly zoo/paly??

I ordered from reefs2to and am getting these for free... Does anyone know about them? And what do I so when I get them? Do I just drop them in my tank?

I usually temp float the bag for about 15-20 minutes then I dip the corals and in they go.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I use coral rx for my dipping. It will help get rid of any critters that may have hitched a ride on the coral. You would place the frag in the tank where you want it, don't just drop it in. lol

Nope, they are fine. Just wash your hands when youre done, paly's and zooa's can be toxic.

Sorry I'm kinda hijacking this, but drip acclimation isn't needed with corals?
