    Just a quick question regarding some frags I want to get.
    How long can they stay in the LFS bag for? Meaning if I had to purchase them at 13:00 and only start acclimating them at 17:00 when I get home. Will this be okay? Frags in question here are some Zoas

    Should be fine, just keep them in a box to avoid massive temp changes
    Remember the corals get shipped from overseas in a tiny bag and they arrive here fine.
