Hey guys, so I gave a 150 gallon tank set up. I've had it running for a few months with hermits, a few snails, and a couple of damsels. After the cycle was complete I didnt get any more fish for around 2 months just to make sure all the numbers were good and everything was stable. I got a coral beauty and it has been doing great. Eating and exploring his new home. Yesterday I got a cleaner shrimp from lfs and drip acclimated it for almost an hour, put it in, and it had died within a few hours. I tested all parameters and they looked great. My salinity is 1.023 which is where i always have it. Did I not acclimate him long enough or just a bad lfs product?

Sounds like it was probably an LFS issue, or that maybe it was just too stressed on the way home.
