Good luck! Maybe the goby is jammed in somewhere between the rocks or his remains. Do you have a strong clean up crew, maybe they took care of most of it and the rest is still in there.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

the swapping out of the phosphate media might stress corals if you have used a lot of GFO, but i don't think it will kill fish.
you do not have a calcium level of 500 if your KH is 11. you are probably using API test kits and they are incorrect. even so, that would not kill the fish or make the corals melt away, unless you had a parameter spike, like perhaps your alk plummeted or something.
what size tank was this again?

Which test kit should I use for alk..

Cause those have been the readings.. Only parameter that's high has been nitrates...

I recommend salifert for calcium, magnesium and alkalinity.

220 gallons of water isn't easy to spoil. i don't think a single fish would spoil that tank to the point of killing other creatures. how about stray voltage, some other toxin perhaps, how about a predator?

what are you doing in terms of water changes? using R.O.D.I.? if not, maybe the source water is funky....how about the salt? how are you performing water changes? mixing the new water overnight before adding?
when did this start?

the scallops aren't going to live for long anyway. yellow tonga leathers or mushrooms? leathers some times put off toxins.
