Don't you hate it when...
 
You go out to one of the biggest pet stores in your area, AKA That Fish Place spend sixty dollars in fish, go home immediately, acclimate them for a ~60-80 minutes, do a nice drip, and then one of your Gertrude's Blue Eyes dies on ya? I hate that so much. You go and do it all right to be extra safe...and one of your new guys die.

Dang! Knowing you I'm assuming your water is alright so how do the other fish look to you as far as behavior? That sounds to me like you been handed a fish there that wouldn't have made it till the AM regardless I mean it didn't even make it past the acclimate process....I'd give the store a call if I was you.

I'm sorry man but maybe my MTS/ puffer post can wind your thoughts into a happier direction :-)

The rest of my blue eyes are all good, and my thread fin cichlids are still a little pale, but normal, and my krib is great too. I'd call the store and do the whole water testing thing, but it takes me an hour and a lot of gas to get down there and back, totally not worth the 6 dollars he was, no offense.

I'll take a look. ;)
