I would think that if its on its side in the corner of the tank and isn't really doing much except sitting there... then I believe you have problems. possibly from stress from the move from lfs. all you can really do is just watch it and hope itll be ok in the morning

Sorry about the delay but i was not helped in time so i decided to take matters into my own hands and i am proud to say that everyone survived, although it was kind of scary since it was the first time i have acclimated saltwater fish. They were just assorted damsels and just two blue legged hermits. i do believe it was from stress in the transporting but everyone is fine.

be careful in your reactions to tank issues. its not uncommon for a misplaced reaction to actually make matters worse.
