I work at a LFS, and this may suprise some of you but when we get 100 Acro colonies in we dont have the time to acclimate each one. I just unbag them and place them in the frag/SPS tank, no acclimation, and our survival rate is pretty good (~90%).

I float for about 10-15 minutes to get the temp stable. I add about the equivalent of half of the bag's water from my tank and let it sit for 15 minutes. Then I dump all the water into a bucket. Add flatworm exit and seachems reefdip. I let them soak in there for another 10 minutes and then I place them in the display on the bottom for a few days so they acclimate to my light then move them up. Has worked for me without a flaw

Hmmm...now I wonder where do we get red bug and monti nudis from?

Dipping coral is to get rid of those pests have nothing to do with survival rate of the coral. At the LFS you do not have time to do it but when the reefer bought the coral home it's foolish not dipping the corals unless you want to have some fun killing the monti nudis and red bug in your main tank.
