Blue spot puffer

I just got a blue spot puffer like 2 hours ago from a local mom pop fish store. I was looking at the puffer for good 30 mins before deciding to buy it. It appears to be healthy and swimming happily at the store.

I then proceed to about 30 mins acclaiming using the drip and changing 10% water while waiting for the drip in a separate tank.

As soon asi put the puffer inside my new 75 gallon tank. It started to swim sideway and drifting side by side. Why is it doing this?

I also tested my water with 0.25 amm, 0 nit. 0 nat, 5 phosphate, 420 cal. Rodi water.

I placed my yellow tang and a box puffer in this tank.

This tank has been up and running for 1 month now. No dead fish no corals just live rocks and sand with fish

It looks like it got a broke back as the back is at an angle.

Could it be while moving it into the tank some how I break it's back bone?

It looks like the half hour drip wasn't enough and seems to be suffering from shock. How much water did you drip and was it temperature acclimated? I doubt it's a broken back.

That sucks Was the temperature of both the tank and the water the fish was in the same? How many gallons of water did you drip into the container he was being held in?

The temperature was the same. However the water inside the bag from the store it wasn't that much. I was kind of wondering why so little water. It was just enough to go over the body of the water.

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.

Having any traceable ammonia could also be the cause here. Any reason why your reading ammonia? The tanks been properly cycled right?
