What was the salinity of the water from the lfs? IME most lfs run their fish systems at about 1.020-1.015, which takes a while to drip the sg til they match.

Did you test the water from the lfs? Also agree with bectan, ammonia should never be found in a cycled tank.

I am assuming it's an API test kit. It's near impossible to tell the difference between 0 and 0.25ppm

When I got home I immediately places the bag inside the tank to acclaim the temperature. 15 mins later I took the bag out and place it into a tank with same temp for water dripping. I used the same water that is from the tank it's going into. About a full cup.

Using a cup of water isn't nearly enough. I have to point the finger at shock from acclimation.

Heres a guide on drip acclimating

It should take at minimum a gallon of water for drip acclimation a fish. I personally do 2 to 3 gallons.

Alright, if you say so.

But the only thing that would cause a fish to have problems the moment it hits your water is shock. Whether it's from ph, temperature, or salinity something didn't match up and caused the fish to die.
