You were kidding, right? Are you really going to put something else new directly into your tank? I'd have to advise against that, especially after this last problem. Cheap or not the poor fishies deserve a chance, no?

Please hold off. Explain to your company that you're in mourning. Cover the tank with black if you need!

Sorry for the loss of your fish.

Please tell us you're kidding... that would be rough to throw something in now. What good would it be if your company to see a dead fish floating around? That's no fun.

Like Phyl said... hold off till you get everything under control.

wellI have a PT, and his belly is also some sort of compressed, however it cleans up all my hair algea in the tank and now ate all the food i produce for him.His belly still looks compress so i asked the lfs, they told me sometimes because during shipping the fish might scratch the belly for a long time , so it some how looks that way, but as long as providing enough food and good water quality, it will come back to normal.I had mine for about 2 weeks now, everything looks fine .
How did u acclimate your PT?

I need to get fish this weekend because company is coming over on Monday
No offense to your company, but the health and welfare of your fish is considerably more important than impressing a visitor. Patience is the watchword with any aquaria, but especially the marine variety. I rushed when I got started in the hobby, and it bit me in the butt every single time; now I know better. You must always consider the quality of life of your little finny friends first, not to mention the huge investments of time and money this hobby demands.

And a quarantine tank is just about the best investment you can make. You could stop worrying that you're getting ready to shoot yourself in the foot when you bring a new fish home.

In order of setup:

FW1-16g, 5 Zebra danios, 4 Pristella Tetras, 4 Black Skirt Tetras, 2 Gold Barbs, 1 Brush-nose Pleco
FW2-5g, 1 Baby Gold Marble Angel (raised from fry), 6 Zebra Danios
SW1-75g, (80# LR), Scarlett hermits, Turbo snails, Percula Clownfish (Gizmo), Oscellaris Clownfish (Whizzer), Indian Yellowtail Angelfish (Mikado), Royal Gramma (Orpheus), Black Sailfin Blenny (Casper), Yellow Tang (Pele), Racoon Butterflyfish (Raptor), Lyretail Anthia (Juliette)
FW3-30g, 2 mated Gold Marble Angels (Oscar/Yenta)
SW2-20g, QT, currently empty
FW4-30g, currently empty
FW5-20g, 2 Gold Angels (non-paired)
SW3-35g (REFUGIUM for SW1) - EVIL ChocChipStar, Nassarius and Turbo snails
SW4-55g, 4 BlueGreen Chromis, King's Crown snail.

Alright maybe I came about this the wrong way I figured out why it died. The fish died because of temperature flunctuation. It is a somewhat sensitive fish. And since the temp in CT has been up in 90's the tank went from 78 to 83-84 during the day. I took the water to the LFS as well as tested it myself everything is fine. I dont have the Air Conditioner in so the tank was exposed. So it didnt die of a disease it was simply just temperatrue which I could have easily prevented but had no idea.
