Woke up this morning to dead fish.

I woke up this morning and went to turn there light on in my 55 gallon and every single fish I own was dead in there. I don't understand why if checked the water right away and everything was perfect. Any one know what could have happened?

You overstocked the tank with large fish that don't belong in it with out the proper biological filtration in place inside the tank would be my guess

All the fish I have in this tank have been in there a really long time I don't believe I was overstocked.

I had 2 clowns
2 yellow belly damsels
2 yellow tail damsels
And a major damsel
Then a Royal Gramma

You think that might have been 2 much for it?

I don't. Especially over night. What was the temp? There are many other things that could have killed the fish that you don't test for. Is there any film on the surface?

My temp is 78 what I always keep it at. There was no film on top or anything. Also my two stars are still alive but I moved them to another tank for now to be safe.

How old is your tank? What have you been doing to it before the night?

Did you happen to notice whether the fish died with their gills flared out or if they looked like themselves only dead? Each condition is a clue to a possibility.

Those fish are pretty hardy. One possibility that can wipe out your fish overnight while not affecting corals and inverts would be the Marine Velvet parasites. When was the last time you added a livestock in your tank?

I didn't notice that they looked any different. Also I haven't added anything new to that tank in 6 months or more last thing I got was a clown
