New Livestock. Help!

Alright guys, i got alot of stuff today, and i honestly haven't a clue what to do for some of these things.

I got a zoo rock, purple firefish, 3 feather dusters, 1 cleaner shrimp, some retarded snails.. and like half a pound of live rock. Also, i got some chaeto but i know what to do with that.

Help me guys, idk.. if i can acclimate them all in the same 10G tank.. or if i have to do it seperatly, also what to do with the zoo rocks. idk. Help would be nice.

Also, can i just put the pound of live rock into the tank? It has been cured.. so would it produce any ammonia spikes or anything?

If the rock is truly cured, there should be little to no die off. As for the others, inverts should be drip acclimated and you can just drip acclimate, or do the typical acclimation on the fish. HTH.

I would acclimate the snails and shrimp in a bucket.
QT the fish.
Rubberband the chaeto to a rock.
I'm not sure on the coral, I think you can just temp acclimate it to your tank..

Alright, it's just that i got a little overwhelmed lol, from all the things i got, that i kindof got lost in the moment. Everything is being acclimated right now, with a steady drip. Everything seems to be doing fine as well, everythings moving around etc.. Found some little serpent stars and a couple asterinas too lol. Just got a little hyped up haha.

Yeah, also another question for people with zoos. After they are put in the tank.. how long does it usually take for them to open up?

LOL depends IME. Some will open up in a few minutes, some a few hours, and some may even take a few days.
