This is very odd...sounds like he is being poisoned (oil seal break) but I'm no pro!
May be mr X will chime in, he seems to know a heck of a lot about SW fish

Maybe get 3 more chromis and only drip for 20 minutes. See how that goes? Or maybe 1 as a test.
Ammonia doesn't build up nearly that quickly in water. The fish waste needs time to break down before it gets converted into ammonia. I am absolutely positive that it's not an ammonia spike in the bag.

Have you tested the parameters of the LFS water?
What is your source water?
Have you checked for chloramines? (normal ro/di doesn't remove them)

I get already prepared water from the lfs that many other people use as well so I know that the water is not contaminated with heavy metals and such. Ammonia/nitrites/nitrates all zero, Ph is 8.0, and salinity is 1.023. Temp is 80 degrees Fahrenheit

Maybe he is... I always make sure my hands are clean when I wash my hands and everything.

Have you ever used any cleaning supplies near the tank?

Thats an ammonia based chemical. A trick i do thats great is i use a spray bottle with ro water and spray the glass, and then wipe it down with a squegie.
