You seem to be doing it correctly. How long to you drip acclimate? What I do Is I first take a reading of the PH & SG of the bag water and acclimate until I get that same reading as my tank. anywhere from 40 mins to 1 hr.

thats about how long i do it just over an hour

i have tryed both drip and adding a quarter cup of water to there bag for an hour

had my water tested today again by a different shop and then did another pwc not going to add any more fish for a while to see if i can flush out what ever is killing them

maybe drain all the water and recycle the tank

To recycle the tank is not good idea I think. Do you have UV?

Gonna agree with this one. And if you're relying 100% on the LFS for your test results, I'd also get a test kit and start doing your own. But from everything I've read, it sure seems like you're doing everything right.

I agree with Kurt. How are the fish being caught in the wild?
