Ingy's idea could be right. Ammonia got high, killed some of the fish, but got gobbled up by the BB since, so back down to zero now. Two days seems awful quick to jump up and do enough damage to actually kill those fish, especially the damsel. That and the clown would be my bets for longest survivors in bad water conditions. How is everything else looking?

The last two fish don't seem stressed.

What is your water temp and is it pretty stable? How about your sump and do you have ATO?

Temperature stays between 79-80 degrees pretty consistently. I have a sump with skimmer and an ATO as well.

Have you eliminated the possibility of parasites in your tank?

Any visual indication like white spot on body. It may also be possible that the LR you inherited is infested with deadly worms. Some bristle worms can be problematic. Use flashlight at night and find out.

Thank you for the link. As for white spots, I haven't noticed any. And my LR was from a previous tank I had running for about 1 year.

What are the oxygen levels in the tank? If you have a sump, is it sealed or have an open top? Also, is there surface movement in the tank? I have experienced a sudden drop in oxygen levels in my freshwater tank and nearly lost all of my fish after a water change. This happened within hours of the water change. I added a bubbler and repositioned the spray bar. Just a thought with a sudden loss of fish with no other explanation with everything else measuring normal.
