It does not matter that the water tested OK. Much more to water parameters than salinity, NO3, NO2, NH3, Alk, PH, etc. Not saying your water was bad, it was just different than what the star was in. They handle changes in water very poorly and need to be acclimated VERY slowly.

So when I get another drip acclimate for several hours and it should be ok.

Today I added a shirmp to the tank and let him have a few hours to acclimate. He is fine so far.

The next thing on the list is a mushroom. I hope neither of these will have the same fate. Slow drip next time.

Sounds good.

A mushroom will handle the change much better than a star. Drip acclimation is still the best process though. Good luck.
