Do you drip acclimate your fish?

I picked up a RBTA from Terry over at Seahorse on Sunday and drip acclimated "her" for 1-1/2 hours before introducing to the tank. That evening she moved into under a ledge to a very shady spot with low flow. For the last 48 hours she hasn't moved. Tonight I offered her a small (approx the size of one half of a peanut) piece of raw shrimp from New Seasons. She took it quickly and readily.
I tried to err on the side of caution with the portion side... I don't want to feed more than she can handle or create any stress. I'm not planning to spot feed her again for a couple of days.
if anyone has any commentary feel free to share... Too much / too little / too soon to feed? Pic below from when I first put in the tank, and a second one from just a moment ago (note I lightened the second pic to show a little more detail).
I was looking around for acclimation videos and found this interview with Reef2Reef and Steve Tyree:
There isn't a whole lot going on in the video (because it's an interview), but there is a lot of good information being said. I just threw it on in the background and listened to it. Definitely have a better understanding of the pests you might find and dipping corals.
