Question How long will it take?

Hi everyone, I was just wondering how long it took for invertabrates to start doing something?

I bought 4 Hermits (Red-Legged), 6 Turbo Snails and 1 Emerald Crab And they are not doing anything yet. I'm not worrying about if they will do anything, I was just wondering how long it takes for them to get sttled and used to the aquarium..?

they get used to the tank pretty fast.
they probably work more when light off.
my emerald work all the time, try to find food from my rocks, I don't have turbo, but my netrite snails usually move when light is off, my hermit just climbing all the time.
give them couple days, they will start doing their job.
Thanks to AMD, HN1, Zero, partypalooza, thincat, and thominil who helped me in almost every questions. Thanks everyone!!!!!
