Make sure water parameters are excellent as to reduce any added stress. If not a PWC might be in order

I would set up a QT tank quick, I have hear that they will release a toxin when dead and it will nuke your whole tank. A LFS was acclimating a cow fish with other fish in a bucket and the cow died during acclimation and it killed all the other fish in the bucket.
