    Ok, so on the 22nd I have a large shipment of 19 frags comming from Mr. Coral XP

    I kinda wanna dip them so I don't introduce any new troubles to my tank.

    My question is: What should I use as a Dip method?

    Coral types are:
    -War Coral
    -A few SPS
    -A few zoas

    The only method I have used before is a fresh water dip. And I think that will only work for zoas. Am I correct?
    Because a long time ago I did try to FW dip a small monti cap and fried it instantly >_<
    What other methods can I use?
    I heard of Iodine, I do have a large bottle of Iodine so that would be ideal.
    If so could some1 give me the details on that?

    or what other method would work best for my LPS (especially)?

    Those are just a few. Most are iodine based. Dip your corals for about 5 minutes, shake them off in the solution, then rinse in RO water and put in the tank.
