new fish, one doa :(

ok, so today I bought a couple things and my fish arrived from liveaquaria

anyways, I bought 20lbs of fiji rock for $2.10 a pound,a steal, this stuff is full of life..

so I also received my shipment of fish... one goby, 12 hermit crabs (scarlet, blue legged, etc) 4 turbo snails... and a cleaner shrimp.

to my surprise, the cleaner shrimp was on his side when I opened the box. I was like omg he's dead.

so I touched him and its like he came to life, sadly, he didn't last, when I put him in the tank he didnt even sink, didn't even move his legs

55 gallon fw
-1 Pleco
-3 Yellow Labs (+ babies in maternity tank)
-1 Blue peacock
-1 Syno Cat

sorry for your loss. Shipping fish is pretty stressful on them. I'm betting most LFS probably see a regular death rate as well with their shipments.
