Acclimate help

I am thinking about getting the tank cleaner pack from live aquaria it comes with about 60 different critters. My question is how to acclimate all those critters and introduce them in the tank at the same time?

I like to drip acclimate but I take my tank water and mix with theirs in a QT tank. They can relax after shipping and you can make sure they don't die in your tank.

That's a big clean up crew! Drip is the safest way. Snails are pretty sensitive so that's how I would do it.

Cleaners Really dont need to be dripped. Starfish nems and some shrimp do. Snails can go through just about anything ive never lost them. For snails and crabs id just temp accumulate. WHat come in the pack/
