I use a drip-acclimation method; I put a bit of Prime in the bottom of a bucket (this is to detox ammonia/nitrites that may be high in the bag water, especially when receiving mail order fish), pour in a cup of tank water (get some quick surface agitation to make sure the O2 doesn't bottom out), and then get a slow drip siphon going and let the water params equalize for a few hours. Then I net the fish and add them to the tank.

If you're adding them to a CO2-injected tank, I'd drop down the CO2 for a few days and slowly increase back up just like you did last time around.
