I would say the first order of bussiness is some 25% PWC every other day for a few days. If it is a chemical imbalance then fine and if not you have not done any harm but good.

The lights may not be that old but I've heard that you should replace your PC lights every 6-9 months. Maybe its about that time if nothing else works? I dont think that would be causing your problems but just a heads up for you. I agree with everyone else that it could be chemical warfare going on in your tank. You could also have gotten a hitchhiker on one of your rocks like a crab or mantis or something. Just a thought.

I do not think that light has to do anything in this case :/ Firefish can't die from old light. Corals will open even though the light is old. I would say something is wrong with ur water and u've got to fix it. I agree with melosu that you should perform some WC's. Also, run some AC. HTH
