A long while back, back when I was researching info for reef tanks, I came across a video where they mentioned something that should never leave the water. ( I think it was a sponge or something like that.) tomorrow I’m about to get my first ever shipment of corals and suddenly I goth thinking, are there any corals that I should be careful to not fully leave the water?

I think it was indeed a sponge as air can get trapped in its body.

I've never heard a coral that can't leave the water. I could be wrong though, so take that with a grain of salt.

I have a few Gorgonians. Grubes, Purple Candelabra and a Corky. All have been out of the water and all were dipped in coral rx. No ill effects at all.
I agree that they can be a bit cranky sometimes for no apparent reason, close up for a day only to come back the next day in full 'bloom'.
