I'd transfer them like any other fish I get from the LFS a slow drip acclimation so as not to shock them at all.
I just started up my first dirt tank a few weeks ago I used flourite black sand as my cap didn't rinse it first and Oh man was it filthy even after several water changes and about 4 weeks there is still a cloudiness to the water, it's almost crystal clear but not quite. Just make sure you clean the filter at least once a week till things get settle down I used filter floss to get the really fine particles out and it's worked so far but really slows down the water flow when it needs to be changed.
Feel free to check out my thread and let me know what you think.
