Lando, i removed the wrasse before it was fully dead as I knew it was doomed
Hmmm...this leads me to believe that the H3 spike came before the death. Although I am not sure why. How are levels now? All fish doing okay?

Themn something is decomposing in your tank that you have not found....a parasite could account for fish deaths, but would not cause an ammonia spike. It is possible, of course, that more than one thing is at work here....something causing the ammonia and something else effecting fish health (I have a great story about a couple of metallic crayons destroying a reef once).

Just out of curiosity, did you get the trigger from PJ's?

Lando, my levels are all back to normal now and the remaining fish seem to be doing okay as they are eating and swimming around. Toirtis, I got the trigger from aquarium enthusiasts in devon.

Weird, but it looks like things are back to normal. Good for you.

How high of an ammonia spike did you have and did you also happen to check the pH?

Was any water from the LFS bag allowed into the tank?

Was the wrasse still out and about or down for the night?

I did manage to save most of the fish through water changes and quarantine.
Were all the fish removed to QT or just some?

Cheers
Steve

My test kit said it was .5 mg/l. I did check the ph and it was down about .2. I never allow lfs water into my tank! I don't know what you mean by the wrasse. I quarantined all of them except my tomato clown which survived this ordeal the best. He was the first one up and swimming again and go figure when you don't want a damsel to die it does

Not much else I can offer given the info. I would go on what the others have suggested but be wary of possible future problems and be very watchful.

As far as the wrasse, you did not mention the time of day so I was interested in knowing if the wrasse had buried itself for the night or not. They will often resurface when there is a severe water quality issue.

Cheers
Steve

I misinterpreted the post RELAX Canada. Adding a Picasso with soft inverts is absolutely brilliant and asking for help on this is asking for the obvious anyway. Oh wait, wait, it's a fish tank no a reef tank no a fish tank. You could probably solve the problem by adding another trigger, like a queen trigger, they are great with picasso's and get along great with inverts. They aslo eat ammonia and it will drive down the spike. Solve your own problems if you know the answer. You are clearly well versed in the hobby...

I have a 55 gal that was reef but I have changed it to fish and a couple corals(xenia and glove polyps) Everything has been great until I brought a small picasso trigger home yesterday
The answer to your problem is in the quote above genius.

Why don't you keep your smart *** comments to yourself. Who said anything about inverts? It's people like you that are of no help to anyone so how about you do everyone a favour and keep comments that help nothing to yourself USA
