How did you acclimate them? They can be sensitive.

Floating the bag for a half hour/hour, adding water from the tank every so often.

You should really drip acclimate, floating the bag really isnt good enough for saltwater fish

I had them in a tupperware and I poured water in every 10-15 minutes or so for about 1 hour to let them when I acclimated my fish. Since then, I've drip acclimated everything. So far so good.

Yeah that's what I'm gonna do from now on.

On another note, I got my trAtes down to 10ppm. Just made up another 10g of mixed water to do another change tonight. Then probably another 10g change tomorrow.
