thanks for the info tecwzrd.
So what about if they get a shipment in on Tuesday, could I go tuesday or wednesday per say, or should I wait a week? I mean to keep from the first shock of the LFS or what?

IMO as soon as possible to reduce time in stress.

IMO the stress of shipping and then acclimating to the lfs tank and then your own tank again within a short period can really be hit or miss and is not worth the risk.

I personally always buy my stock and have the lfs hold for a week to make sure it's healthy and eating, if it doesn't live at the lfs then they have no alternative but to refund your money and/or replace.

No problem

Also checkout Selecting Healthy & Appropriate Marine Fishes which is an excellent article. It doesn't cover inverts but still is good info to know about selecting healthy fish.
