You acclimated them for temperature, but did you acclimate them for pH? (You didn't get them used to the other parameters of your water too, temperature is not the only one)

The water at Petco might have a different pH than the water in your tank, if drop your Tetra from one to the other and the difference is too much,

BAM!

Dead fish.
