Just throwing a question out here. What is your tank temp? I had a heater malfunction once and lost a lot of fish inverts and corals very quickly.

Sorry for your lose. Hope you find out what happened

Oops my mistake. Missed that one. In that case, since your parameter readings are perfect all you need to do now is make observation after pwc.

Is it possible that some airborn chemicals made their way into the tank?

Tank temp is 78 and nothing gets sprayed in that room for anything airborn

Are there glass lids on the tank? Do you keep fresh air circulating in the room? Reason i ask is because a big enough ph swing could do this and if it returned to a relatively normal ph when you tested it, youd never know

No glass lids and a fan blows across the top of the tank the thing also is I ran all my parameters before adding gfo and all was good before hand.

Not salinity. The alkalinity in dKH usually drops with GFO and it can affect tank inhabitants if it's too low.
