I would just float the bag for 20 min. and a drip for 1 hour is fine. Just don't let the water in the drip container drop in temp. Hope they do well for you. Enjoy!

alright well aclimated and the gsp is mounted and the stag is mounted and the cap is shoved in a rock pretty good i think it might be alright if not ill have to glue it tomorrow if i see movement.
the green cap did slime a bit after putting it in there i am assuming this is normal ? and the stag slimed a bit in my hand aswell .
gsp is already poking its lil head out and looks good so far any advice would be wonderfull
thanks

Yes it is normal for them to slime. Sounds like you got your bases covered and yes make sure the cap stays in place, snails and hermits can knock them over. Now its just watch them grow : )

Well depending on what coral you have....I would do a coral dip, becausee yu need to remove all the nasty critters! Then acclimate it to your tank with a drip.
