I'm gonna get my water tested a little later after work but I'm just wondering what went wrong. I've done these same water changes for 2 weeks and everything had been fine. I'm using water from my display tank so I can't seem to figure out what i did wrong. Now I'm feeling super guilty, should I have not used squats time tank ? Should I have just put the anthias in the display tank . Or did I do the right thing and kept the fish in my display tank safe from what ever killed the anthias. I am at a loss for words and any advise right now would be great.

heater off or stuck on?
how big is the quarantine tank? 10 fish is a lot to add to any tank at one time.
Were they purchased from a local store or online? if a local store check and see if they had any issues with the shipment that you got the fish from.
don't call and ask, go in and check for yourself.
one time I got a couple of firefish gobies and the tank had about 3 dozen of them in it. Within 24 hours they both started doing the "spinning swim" and shows signs of hemorrhaging or something in the gills, but not parasites.
I went back to the store with the dead fish, and the guy began to recite the policies and all that jazz. So I asked how the rest were doing and he said fine. I walk over to the tank and there were 3 left (doubt they sold 3 dozen in a day). I pointed at them and said "fine????, those will be dead by the end of the day." they were all doing the spinning swim.
Reluctantly they gave me credit for them and said it was a pecial circumstance and not to expect a refund in the future.
