I don't, I just start everything on the sandbed for a week and that has been fine for me. If they are lower light stuff I try and find a piece of "shade" sometimes to start them off at. Visually you can see when the corals are happy again, I use that as an indicator as well.
Don't be deceived though, LED
's can be dimmer than your old lights and much much more powerful. I started mine at about 15% to start. I'm happy at right under 50%, have LPS
on the bottom, SPS
wherever I want, and softies on the bottom. With great growth all around.
