How long did you acclimate him for in total time? I tend to do it for at least an hour, sometimes two.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I'd put out the lights and check him in a few. Maybe he's a bit dis oriented.

Some places will take them back, but usually no. Check with the lfs that you bought it at, ask them what you should do.

Honestly, the fish looks unhealthy in the net. Very thin. Did you see it eat? Also, I would have acclimated much longer. But I think the fish was sick to begin with.

Maybe pH shock. It's always best to drip acclimate.
