Do you have lots of Coraline Algae and good water circulation and water surface agitation? What were your pH and alk readings the morning the fish were dead? Lack of oxygen is another possibility.

Electrical shock. Was there a power outage last night? Are any equipment shorted out?

Id say electric shock. Happened to a friends tank. He's heater was shorting out and killed all he's fish. Only thing that survived was the clean up crew. Maybe check your heater?

The typical sign of fish that die from asphyxiation (lack of oxygen) is their gills will be flared out due to trying to breathe the largest breaths causing their gills to flare. This state would be seen in all the dead fish as well. "normal" appearance is usually a sign of biological demise. ( i.e. disease, old age, etc.)

The electric issue bares looking in to. Heaters, cracked heaters actually, can leak an electrical charge into the water which may have done the fish in. It could also have been from any other electrical item in the tank. You may want to use a voltage meter to check the tank for electricity leaks before adding anything back to the tank or replacing machinery. If you do show electric in the tank, start unplugging each machine one by one to see which item is leaking the charge. It used to happen frequently with submersible power heads so I won;t jumpt to conclusion that it's from the heater.

Hope this helps

Were you doing any cleaning that night? Did you have your hands/arms in the tank? Any chance something toxic could have been introduced?

I agree electrical needs to be looked into.

Hey guys I looked into the electrical and I can't find anything wrong with anything I completely drained my tank and I will start over with this one but I wasent cleaning or anything like that around the tank. It's really bothering me that this happened because a lot of weird things have been happening around my house the last week

All related to the fish? If so your water municipality may have added a new chemical to the water supply and it could have been introduced to all of your tanks.
