    Besides the exposed skeleton in the back, it looks like it is acclimating. I am thinking leave it alone for now. Try and feed it some Mysis or Plankton tonight. Mine eats like a pig!

    It looks pretty rough to me. Once they lose tissue as this one has on the backside, it's very much a challenge to bring them back to health. The tissue remaining on it looks bleached.

    You can put it under an overhang to give it indirect light. I tried to google your lighting; seems to be on the weaker side anyways, no?

    Otherwise, I would return it back the LFS and get a credit or your money back.
