Why did my butterfly die?

We have been waiting for a yellow long nose butterfly for a month. The first one at the LFS had fin damage and they were treating him. After he was healed a new person accidentally sold him after a few more weeks they got another one.

He looked perfect with no problems. So we brought him home on Wednesday (6/6/12) he has been in our quarantine tank. He was doing great swimming around I waited a few hours to feed him and he was eating great. Then last night 6/7/12 he was hiding in the rocks a lot and rubbing his tummy on the rocks upside down. Since it was late night we had to wait till morning. When we woke up he was dead. why did he die? The hermit crabs we eating him so I can't tell much on physical appearance but I didn't see anything last night. Is that normal for them to die that quickly without much notice? All water levels are great

I'm not sure. We didn't see any visible signs of issues.
