fish may not have been fed at warehouse for days causing starvation sometimes they appear to be fine when you get them and wham its too late ,it may eat after you get it but the damage was already done.

no fish is bullet proof even I lost a few

even if you acclimate there s still a chance there is a water parameter difference salinity,temp,ph,nitrate,nitrite ect

there's many more factors than I mentioned but I think you get the idea

don't get discouraged about a fish because someone lost one it happens

even the most experienced fish keepers loose a fish now and then

it's not rocket science and things just happen

hope you understand what I'm trying to say
+1 i agree with everything. Just because someone kills their clown fish doest mean i would be scared to get one, it all depends on how your system is.

Everything you guys are saying makes sense. Guess I can't be so nervous to lose a fish if I'm gonna do the SW thing, huh? Lol

The angelfish is going to his new home today!!
Here's a shot of the tank right now, gotta get a little more rock today too.

weather its salt or fresh there's always that possibility of loosing a fish
weather your a novice or a pro if its going to die there's nothing you really can do its a hit and miss hobby

just don't get discouraged and give up !!

love the way you set up your rocks by the way gives the tank character

I'd move the first rock (circled in brown) to where the rock circled in yellow is, then move yellow rock to where the arrow points.
