I feel this so hard. I bought a fish from my lfs that died within 24 hours. If the fish can't handle 1 transfer with only a 10 minute wait before its acclimating, then it shouldn't be sold. I drip acclimated for an hour. I went back the next day to get a refund/credit, and they told me I couldn't because I didn't quarantine the fish...
One gripe I have about all fish these days is that they are coming in at very low salinity (1.017 is common). If you drip that fish up to 1.026 in a hour - it's dead for sure. It takes days to make that transition.
