So I ordered them last night cuse I was supposed to be off from work tomorrow so I figured I would be here to acclimate them and I just got called into work tomorrow, I don't know what time they will arrive and I have no idea what time I'll be home, do ya think they will be OK until the end of the day? I ordered Turbo's some Cerith's, Peppermint shrimp's and hermits, what do ya think, will they be OK until I get home from work?

Usually delivery for livestock is before 10:30am as for the live stock if packed well and your weather condions are not to cold/hot if package is left outside you should be fine the sooner the better of course

I just had some livestock delivered from them. The box got delayed in Tennessee overnight. I had clowns & crabs in the order. Long story short.they were fine, even having in transit for ~ 48hrs. Your CUC should be fine.

Take your time to acclimate......crabs and snails are very sensitive to PH changes.

Obviously shorter is better, LOL! Most shipments arriving into the US from the S. Pacific are in transit 36-48 hours. We've also had some of our outbound shipments delayed for various reasons. With 40 hours heat packs even during winter/snow storm delays almost everything was fine. They only time we've had issues was when we had delays during the summer with extreme heat. Looks like your daytime temps are pretty mild right now, so I expect you'll be fine.
