VIP type for FiOS 5 external static block?

Trying to setup my FiOS static IPs and having trouble - this is the first time I've every had FiOS as an ISP and also the first time I've been issued a block of static IPs this way (not my first time with statics but first time with FiOS statics). FiOS issued me a block of 5 IPs (.178-.182) with a .1 GW and /24 mask.
The only examples I have found online are say to use "other" as the type of VIP but it defaults to a /32.
Is VIP, Other, Interface: WAN, Address: xx.xx.xx.179/32 (Same as WAN IP just one higher) the correct way to configure the VIPs?
The problem I run into is that when I go to do the NAT I keep the external subnet a /32 but that by default assigns the internal subnet a /32 as well (a true 1:1 NAT). When I change the 1:1 NAT from /32 to /24 I get an error saying
"The WAN IP address may not be used in a 1:1 rule."
So either I'm assigning the VIPs incorrectly or I'm doing the NAT incorrectly or I'm messing up my rules/NAT/Forwarding. Verizon is not helpful as they are essentially a retail/home type ISP rather than an enterprise level service provider.
Thx for any help with VIPs.

as you mentioned that your block is in same subnet you may use carp version of vip and that allows you to use those vip's in firewall
