Don't give up, maybe you should try a freshwater tank.

maybe something in the tank has a short. a buddy of mine had his poerhead short out and it was basically electocuting his livestock slowly.. it took him almost 6 months to figure that out. I nowhere near as experienced as these guys but its just a thought

Ahhh... I misunderstood what "floating kind" meant.

Three hours for acclimation is way too long. I'd say you wouldn't want to stretch it out longer than an hour. It really depends on how far off the salinity is between the bag water and your tank.

I came up with a crazy theory that results in low oxygen levels... but I can't test, cuz I don't have a test. But I have a powerhead with a venturi option (which I wasn't using), so I hooked it up. This will increase the oxygen, right?

From my understanding, that won't really help the oxygen levels - it's no different than a bubble stone. Surface ripple will give you the most bang for your buck as far as increasing oxygen levels.

Salifert does make a dissolved O2 test kit, if you wanted to test your theory.
