Thanks but not to be mean or anything but I would appreciate you not commenting on any of my posts anymore. I don't appreciate your "advise" 90 percent of the time so please stop.

Do you have small children? It sounds like poisoning to me. Something may have been "added." As Andy indicated, the state of the gills might yield some info.

Woke up this morning to dead fish.

I assume you use RO/DI and that should have isolated you from any changes in the city water supply.

If it was stray electricity, you would probably feel that when immersing your hand in the tank. It would need to be pretty strong to effect the fish as they have nothing tying them to a ground source.

It could be a pathogen, but most of them would leave visible signs like inflamed gills or scale damage.

Food source should also be looked at. A 02 crash could suffocate the fish and leave the corals alone for short periods. But you would see that in their extended gills.

A toxin like hand lotion or soap could raise havoc. Those are all the ideas I have to share. Good luck!

I always rinse my hands in clean water or use gloves when entering the tank.

Organic soap is a good idea and wash up as far as is going into the water. Rinse well. Soap , lotion, suntan lotion, deodorant, etc can all cause problems.

That's great! You finally liked one of the guesses but nobody knows what really killed your fish. At least now you know that handling toxic material can kill your fish which were suggestef several times.

Hand lotion would never kill an entire tank in my opinion. Either some type of chemical (cleaning solution, bleach, etc...) or most definitely electrical shock.
