That's weird. I don't think it could have been anything else, especially if you're parameters were good and the inhabitants were healthy.

My nitrates, nitrites, and ammonia are all still 0. Not sure what to do. I'm sure if my water was off, my birdnest/monti/anemones would be mad at me. And I wanted to add there is no signs of disease before hand. They all look happy and then *poof*.

They're 2 smallish bubble tip. No fish eaters here.

Also my sump is pretty lit up. my refugium is just a wall of rock then cheato on top. I already went through the whole sump and didn't find any fish.

Are you sure you found the dead crab and not just a molt? They look very much like a crab except they're empty.

When I looked through the side of the head, you could see the "bones?" going through. So it was mostly hollow except for lines of bone connecting the top and bottom. Do you still think it could have been the molt?

I'd say you've definitely found the remains of your crab there and not the moult! I really feel for you, can't imagine anything worse than losing everything in such a short space of time!

Another possibility is that it could be a combination of several things. Since your crab vanished first long before the fish as indicated by the skeleton, it must have affected your water in some way due to its size. If you don't have a sump, your oxygen level at night could have been depleted since your tank is fully covered.

I do have a sump and my canopy does not have a top. Also, my total water volume is 110 gallonish so I dont think 1 crab would make a difference.
