jaque is dead why is my damn shrimp dead I couldn't find him so I decided to move my live rock then I lifted up the fake coral and he was all curled up dead as a doornail under there my goby seems to be find but my cleaner shrimp is dead what are any of your opinions? I think I will get my water tested again after work. He is an echinoderm and she said to wait about a month and it has been 3 weeks so is it cuz my water isn't as balanced yet cuz they said it was wait and plus my snails are in there and I know they are more hardy but I thought jaque was going to live did he also get to stressed out from the lfs to my tank and I set him in the water for a few to let him adjust to the temp as well.??????

How long was it in there before it died?

Do you think it was shock or the water? or that it starved to death? If it was a new tank is there anything in there for it to eat yet?

on a side note, I've seen Sailfin Mollies used to cycle a saltwater tank quite efficiently, they will "live" in both salt and fresh water, for such a cheap fish they worked great.

does the lfs that you got it at have a fish guarantee of any kind? at least that might make you feel a little better about losing it...

uh well it is like a 30 min to 1hour drive depending on traffic when I go to the one down there so I would just burn up that much money worth a gas.

most likely it is the change in water conditions.

I also suggest you do not get anything more for your marine tank just yet, from what I know they take a while to get established, and yours is just new.

perhaps you went over your bio-load???
