Alot of us will drip acclimate new additions. Tie a knot in some air hose and start a syphon. Make the knot tight enough for a slow drip. wait an hour or two...or even more. This way there is no shock from salinity and ph change.

Many problems here. Inverts will not tolerate low PH, it needs to be above 8.0
Ammonia needs to be zero, most marine livestock cannot tolerate even small amounts of ammonia for very long, especially inverts.
Stars must be drip acclimated for several hours. Way longer than fish. That alone can cause their demise. CC stars are very sensative to changes in water parameter and poor water quality. They also should never be exposed to air or be touched by our hands.
I would suggest that your take them back (now that they are out of the system) until the tank cycles properly. If fish can't survive in this tank, it is definately not ready for delicate inverts such as CC stars.
Send you friend here, we can help them get set up properly.

o0o--have been really really thinking about it! I have recently began planning my own aquarium store. I hope to be up and running by fall, so then I will be able to dive into everything I've ever wanted to do.
