Can I acclimate all of my critters together

Just rec'd a shipment from reeftopia consisting of snails, crabs & shimps (total of 7 bags). Can I acclimate all these critters together in 1 bucket?

(2) emerald crabs
(1) engineer goby

A few (10) pieces of corals (all frags)
A host of snails and blue leg crabs

If I had it my way, I would spend half my day fishing and the other half watching my fish!

I acclimate stuff together only when I know it came from the same system, if they all were housed/shred the same water together than you should be fine....

Just make sure the salinity, PH and temperature in all the bags is pretty close. The temperature should be, as I imagine they're all in the same general area, but even though they came from the same place, they may have been in tanks with different salinities, and the PH could definitely have changed at different rates during transport. Generally, the differences aren't going to be enough to cause any real problems, but if you want to play it safe. . .
