Dan, sorry about the rotten luck. It seems that this is the norm for this hobby. I have lost a couple of corals and fish in my reef as well. Not to mention the 8 (yes 8) Angels I have lost in my FO tank. It truly sucks and I feel for you.

Um, a Blueface, Regal, Queen, 2 Emperors, 2 Flames, and a Coral Beauty. Wow, it hurts even more now that I've spelled them out. That's why my wife has said "No more Angels, period!".

Thanks Dan. You know what they say. A fool and his money are soon parted. I have become much more careful since then.

All of this happened in how many days? When I nuked my tank, it was from fecal matter in my water. Well water below a corn field. Pretty extreme, but evident of how something you don't think of can put you back. Any changes recently? Think about running carbon on the tank?

Over a week id say. My palm tree coral was eaten I believe by my wrasse. The clam just kept getting knocked over so I think its mantle got messed up and it just stressed out. The chromis I have no idea. It's dead lil body was stuck to my powerhead so who knows. Lol

I've been running Carbon and GFO in my reactor for the past 3-4 weeks probably

Your sure the clam was knocked over rather than trying to move himself to a better spot? It takes so e power to move a clam that size.

Well the one time he fell over was due to my yellow head jawfish making a burrow and taking the sand out from underneath it, so I moved it and it kept ending up on its side the next day. Never moved too another spot, just knocked over. I dunno I blame my wrasse. He's wreaked havoc in my tank so far lol
