I will have to test that one in the morning, am going to swallows aquatics tommorow to get a proper set of accurate tests done, then maybe we can start elimating, was wondering whether getting led lights might be worth ago?

Went to swallows aquatics today and was told everything was fine and that getting led lights and removing the 4 t5's might be the answer

No way would a 4 lamp T5 fixture be the reason for corals dying. That's plenty of light for softies and LPS for sure. If they died over a period of weeks and turned brown during that time, I might suggest lighting, but not immediately.

Just a shot how much carbon are you running and what type? I added some pellet carbon way to much to my sump the next morning my xenias were shriveled up, torch, Duncan and leathers, glove polyps all withdrawn. Everything was hurting except sps's. I removed it did a 25 gal wc a week later everything is almost back to normal. Xenias were losted. Now I just run one unit of chemi pure elite in sump. I always run carbon that time I packed a filter bag full like two cups of the pellet kind it stripped the water.

Don't judge by Xenia , you can lose a full take full in a week for no reason.

Make sure you do not have butterfly fish. They will clean up your corals and invertebrates.

I'm asking where you get your water because I'm suspecting presence of chloramine/chlorine in your water that is too much for your carbon to eliminate..

I never run carbon, and after the RODI, there is nothing. Nothing to hurt anything.

I would still run carbon just in case RO/DI fails in the long run...but in his tank it looks like we are narrowed to something in water as culprit of the problem..
