sometimes you get runts in the pack

and hatcheries tend to off load runts first

that's prob why one died in transit

as long as its easting and drinking it will survive

give it some electrolytes to help it even more further along

it could always just be the transit shook it up a little and it needs time to recover from that which elctros will help with

Just make sure she is eating and drinking and that it is warm enough. Mabey add some electrolites to the water. Other than that not much to do.
