I actually bought 3 chromis last night bc I retested my water and my trates were at 20.. woke up this morning.. one was dead, other 2 are okay.

I'm about to do another water change in a little bit.

I think the LFS's should give you at least a 48 hour guarantee. At least chromis are in expensive as far as saltwater goes. Maybe the one that died just got over stressed and the other 2 will be fine!

Yeah that's why I'm not sweatin it too much, they cost like $5-6 each. And I'm thinking it was just a non healthy fish bc the other 2 seem to be fine
