Live Rock/Chaeto Question

How long can they be kept in their bags for without dying? More than a day without light?

Yea the chaeto will last more than a day without lighting in a bag.. the plant is VERY hardy.. just try not to keep it in the complete dark and try to keep the bag in room temperature..

So if I just had that and the live rocks in bags exposed to the sun, they could last two to three days?

When cycling a sw aquarium and using some live rock, does the tank need to be lit?
