What is the tank set up and the water test readings in this tank? along with tankmates. (Filling out the "myinfo" part of your profile would be helpful)

Your acclimation procedures can be improved upon. That is really not a good way to acclimate salt water animals/corals. The drip method is recommended.

I use airline tubing and ball valves, I bought from HD. Mel has some good articles there. Here is an example of a Fish Acclimation Kit , that I use.

Take some airline tubing and tie a knot in one end. You adjust the tightness of the knot to adjust the flow of the drip. Very simple. Best thing about it is that you can sit it and forget it - not literally of course. You don't have to keep adding water every 15 minutes.

This site has a article on acclimation as well. It is at the top between forum and search.
