I just received some frags (ORA, Tyree, Zoa) in the mail and wanted to know what everyone does to acclimate these types of corals.

I just setup my tank but have 2 hermits and 2 snails, i temp acclimated them, then drip acclimated them, took about 30 min total... I'm guna do the same thing with corals.

I have left the sealed bags with the corals in my sump to get the temp acclimated.
What is the best way to acclimate multiple frags via drip?
How long should I drip before I place them in the display? From what I read I should place the frags in the lower part of the tank. I plan on placing the frags on a peice of eggcrate attached to a mag float and keep this about a 1/4 way up in the tank for a week before moving to desired spot. Does this sound right?

there's a sticky about this up at the top of the forum, re NEW FISH and we went on to discuss corals...
