Definitely quarantine, especially if from the sea. Wait, you're getting coral from the sea? I wouldn't because it will probably die, especially if you're asking a question like this.... Just buy it aquacultured from te store.

If you have the opportunity, yes QT (even aquaculture facilities can have their maladies). After acclimation you can use ReVive as a coral dip. Carefully look for parasites all over the live rock, coral base, and overall tissue (flatworms, redbugs, etc).
