The open mouth isn't good..... What lighting do you have? Did you recently add it? Is it pooping?

What lights do you have? Size tank? Water parameters? How old is the tank?

I probably would have acclimated longer especially if mouth was already open before he went in tank.

A gbta not an expensive purchase? Man, I'm movin to erie... Check on him again in an hour. I was very worried about my carpet yesterday, mouth was open the size of a quarter and spewing out a white cloud. An hour later mouth was closed and today he is back fully extended like nothing ever happened. Nems are odd critters.

Everyone gets ripped off at least once in this hobby. With good parameters its possible he will come around, if not lesson learned. I find nems to be one of the most sensitive creatures in our tanks, more so than SPS really.

Look for healthy specimens at the fish store. Im always looking for signs of stress, parasites, disease etc. And doing this you will save some money.
