Could it be "new tank syndrome"? Even though your parameters are spot on the tank could still be considered too new. (so I have been told)
Also; imo one should add only 1-2 fish at a time.
Not being judgy; just offering up thoughts.
Either way so sad for your frustration and losses.

Understandable but I've added 1 fish(the damsel) and he was on the verge of dying until he disappeared.

I put my Kenya tree in there last night and so far it's doing well.

Did you add the poly pad? Those things aren't magic but they're a great tool in these situations. So strange.

I'd give it three days. If the PVC cement isn't the cause and your coral is looking okay then maybe going slow with a few hermits and snails at first would be the ticket. You could scrape off a couple of zoas from the main tank also. Like a canary in the mine.

Yeah well the Kenya looked good this morning and all my hermits are still alive in the sump so who knows. Guess only time will tell..

Nothing worse than sitting in front of a cycled tank and not being able to stock it. :/

Congrats on the light. Sorry to hear about your recent troubles. Hopefully it is just a bad stock issue and nothing to do with your tank.

Thanks Sean. Yeah im hoping its just coincidence that all 7 fish i bought were unhealthy to begin with lol I put a couple Darth Maul zoas in there about an hour ago and theyre doing awesome right now, and so is my Kenya Tree that has been in there since yesterday.
