Thank you I feel bad for the fish...
Unfortunately part of the hobby, I wish it wasn’t. Did any fish make it, if so which ones?

Yes two Disbar Anthias, Citron Goby, Solar Fairy Wrasse and the McCosker's Flasher Wrasse made it.
Did you temp acclimate and plop in? Pictures when they get used to their new environment, please.

Yes I did and I will get them for you when I get home after work. I took lunch early and ran home to get them settled then had to come back to work.

The white specks you see in the pictures are not on the fish it's food and air bubbles from the air stones. Do either of these Wrasse need sand?

I love how they are not shy for the most part and are really active.
There the lights just turned on about 20 minutes before but my dad says that he walks around the entire tank without being shy

That's great! I love that up to this point all of my fish in my DT are not shy and are like little puppies that run to me for food every time I get near the tank.

Update on the DOA claim they are going to send me replacements free of charge I will have to wait a bit because they are out of Dispar Anthias since they have had them on sale but she said it should be with in a week.
Wow, that's good news, it's good to see companies that keep their word and take responsibility even if it's not their fault.
