*whew! Super late joining this party. But if you're still having issues with this, what is your Salinity/SG? It is possible salt levels were too high or too low if they died after a couple hours.

Sg would've affected the cuc before the clowns. They are part of the damselfish family. And I agree 2 clowns in a 90 isn't going to spike ammonia enough to kill them

It would if the tank wasn't cycled.

I overheard my lfs owner explaining to a customer about why drip acclimation is the wrong method to use and she made sense. Drip acclimating for an hour and a half allows the fish to get too cold, unless of course the container is floating in the tank. Probably wouldn't kill them quickly but it could definitely make them susceptible. Anyway, I thought that was an interesting point of view.

Checking your salinity would be the best bet on this one alot of people forget about that when they are to focused on the nitrites nitrates and amonia
