Get that Api test kit for saltwater and check the ammonia just to be on the safe side and post the results. I don't know if ammonia would affect the corals are not. But you have some very nice pieces in there.

Also do you check salinity? Where do you get your water from? I could understand the tangs not making it, your tank isn't big enough for them. +1 to all of the above, get a saltwater master test kit so you can check everything...

What do you mean by surface agitation?

How much surface agitation do you have? Using a powerhead pointing towards the top of the tank will create ripples on the top of your tank increasing oxygen transfer into your tank. Lack of oxygen might possibly be killing your fish.

Oh.. I would say I have a medium flow of agitation , nothing crazy but you can definitely see when they come on

Did you notice any unusual behavior on fish before they perish like scratching their body with the rocks?

You have parasites on your tank. You have to wait for 6 weeks before adding a new fish in your tank. I do agree to test ammonia also.
