This was the post in this thread I was referring to. He mentions specifically adding ca in conjunction with the death of an invert. "...and accidently added the CA to fast the other day and did in one of my cleaner shrimp..."

I cant seem to get my CA and alkalinity up for anything. Plus my rock has lost its color and prior to me switching all of the inhabitants and such from a 125 to a 100, I had coraline growth that was awesome...now its all fading and nothing is growing.. I have never had to add buffer as i had CC in the previous tank. Now I add Seachem CA, kent Super Buffer, and accidently added the CA to fast the other day and did in one of my cleaner shrimp...I have hit a wall for sure...I have 4 small fish (perc size) and 1 anenome, 3 shrimp and 150 lbs of LR.

Sorry guys my bad...I meant that I added CA and then a few hours later I added buffer and I think THIS is what killed the invert....I added the buffer to fast...I know the CA didnt do it...I think my fingers were typing to fast.. Its the buffer that did him in.
