My final count is 4 survivors out of 18. At least I did not pay a high price for them, 6 for $5. I put a lot of blame on the way LFS housed them. They had a huge tank with hundreds of cardinals and rummy nose together. Image how customers have to catch them in net and separate them and pick and choose... extremely stressful for the fish. The survivors have been doing great. I have 8 rummy nose left out of 18.
