It is probably a goner. If you see it's condition get any worse get it out of the tank. A quick check is to raise it out and if it continues to fall apart or smells of death, get it out. When they die they quickly foul the water and can quickly kill everything in the tank. It would be to soon to really try and nail down what killed it. Whether it got hot on the way home, sat in a bag to long, starved in the store etc... RBTA's need a lot of light, intense light so keep that in mind if you get another.

Glad to hear of the turnaround. When they go they make a mess, so keep an eye out for it. Can't help you much about your lighting as you don't say what size the tank is. It'd be alright for a 20g but not suitable for 400g.
