So, there was a tank nuke and he blames me. So I am giving up on this venture. Thanks for all of the advice though!

There were 2 clownfish
1 black and white fish
1 shrimp
1 starfish
1 sea anemone

The clownfish both had hole in head disease.

I lightly cleaned the rocks and did not disturb the sand bed.

I agreed with Mr X by just changing water. Cleaning the rocks added more ammonia due to die off, reduced bb and thus mini cycle occurs.

Emergency: Aquarium Rescue!

Ok here is the thing. I was afraid you would nuke the tank when you do any things to it which is exactly why I was negative on doing anything to the tank.

BUT, now it has been done and things have happened. You and him need to realize that what you have done would never harm a healthy tank. It is only harmful because the tank was in a such bad condition.

Think about it, now the worst have happened, you can actually do everything to correct this tank and things can ONLY IMPROVE from now on!! You quit now you should and would be blamed. So WRONG time to quit!!!

Now is the time to clean the sand bed, clean the rocks, test everything, recycle and restock! Before restocking, this tank needs a protein skimmer for sure and debatable on a new light depends what you want to keep. I suggest to go simple. Stock only clown fish, mushroom, Zoa, Kenya trees for volume, Xenia for volume and any easy to care corals in the future. No anemones! No fish overstocking!

I agree! However, he has not taken my advice regarding turtle care so I feel that he would most likely disregard my advice for the saltwater aquarium as well. He has completely reestablished the tank, so I am hopeful that he will get it right this time.

It's a tought time to quit I agree but as mentioned earlier in this post eventually they will no longer be students In This class or even school. So worst case the tank will get set up the right way and a few years down the road someone else will fill bad for the neglected tank and have to do this all again. Imo if the teacher can't maintain the tank it's time to let the saltwater go and focus on his other anamals.

Regardless of the failure to save the tank, OP's concern and attempt to save it is commendable.

Time to distance yourself from the situation and this teacher.
