You might look around the site for articles about "drip acclimation" for next time. Nothing, especially inverts, likes to put into the tank with only temperature acclimation. Depending on your tanks parameters, and the LFSs parameters, that could've been a pretty big shock for the guy.

Looking at the pics, I'd also agree that you should probably win an award for "Cleanest Nearly One Year Old Tank".

Hi Limmet,

First of all Welcome to AA. This actually is the friendliest place to get advice on sw, So take a minute and chill.

People here are only trying to help, BUT to do so they need a certain amoount of information before they can formulate an opinon/answer to your question(s).

There's pretty much a standard littany that is asked because the combinations count and the chemistry in a tank is all related. The standard list of questions follows. Please try to answer them fully even if you have to answer 'IDK' (I Don't Know) for some:

What size is your tank? 60 gallons
What lighting do you have (type and wattage) 130w PC
How old is your tank ? 1 year?
How much LR, a/o LS is in the tank? 100 pounds?
Is the LR cured ? (when) (I'm assuming it is by now)
How did you cycle your tank and when? no big deal at this point
What inhabitants do you have ?
What filtration are you using ?
What PHs are you running?
What kind of salt are you using , and how are you making it?
What kind of H20 are you using ? Distilled , tap , RO/DI ?
Are you using any additives?
What are your water parameters ?
PH 8.0
SG
Temp
Ammonia
NitrIte
NItrAte 0
Calcium
Magnesium
Alk

You've already answered a few of them. Please answer the rest. Looking at your photos, if the tank is ready for an anemone this one will hopefully start acclimating to the tank in a few days.

Inhabitants are your livestock. I should have copied that from your original post:
1 yellow tang, 2 felmale athias, 2 clarkii clownfish, 1 Purple Pseudochromis, 1 Saddle Valentini Puffer, and about 30 blue leg hermet crabs

What is your SG (salinity or specifc gravity)? This is very important and one of the items that can shock an animal if changed too quickly. That the reason for a dirp acclimation or gradual addition of tank water to the bag holding a specimen. It allows the SG to slowly equalize. It is best measured with a refractometer.

I actually think this could become more of a deal in the near future, because I'm finding it very hard to think this tank has been up for nearly a year. Maybe it's been full of water for nearly a year, but how long since it's been cycled and had fish in it? Water parameters will shift quite a bit in a just cycled tank.

I mean c'mon... all the stuff hanging on the back (heater, ground probe, temp probe, filter intakes) are absolutely spotless. The back glass under those things is spotless. The plastic plants still look green! The sand looks like it just came out of the bag. Nice dusting of diatoms on the rock which normally occur during, or just after a cycle.

It just don't add up!
