Zoanthids & Polyps

What do I need to do/get/change to start adding Zoes and Polyps to my 29g FOWLR?

Nothing really if your lighting is adequate.

I totally understand that. Once the lighting is out of the way, put the polyps in and voila! Reef.

I just float the bag to temperature acclimate and then put them on the sand bed (I have strong t5 lighting).

Nothing seems to mind...

I'll probably ask for help with my lighting when I go to buy it next weekend. I'll only have $200 to spend. For some reason I'm expected to pay bills first

I use the drip method, which is usually what the online vendors tell you to do. If you introduce things in to the tank without weening them on to the water in your tank, you could possibly shock them. And shocking leads to stress(alot) and then stress *could* lead to death. In my last tank, whenever i added coral i drip acclimated them for an hour. Never had a loss or problem with any of my coral and i drip acclimated SPS, LPS, polyps, and softies.
