Woke up to a graveyard

This morning all my fish are dead. Inverts including anemones all fine. Anyways all that I added was some sea grass from an estuary, and some super glue to hold some rocks. I think it was the super glue, but my dad swears it was from the plants introducing something. Any thoughts? Right now im running carbon, and am going to have to collect ocean water for a large water change. Im sure some of you saw this coming...

WOW, that is horrible

IMO, the superglue would not have caused this...I've super glued countless frags etc in my tank and have never experienced a problem. Possibly something was introduced in the grass you added?

Sorry dude . What was the grand total? I guess you can go ahead with that aggressive tank now. I would say it was from the plants as well, or the water that you tansported them in.

I am not sure that ocean water is the best way to go. It could be very polluted.

i'd say the plants from the estuary. superglue is pretty non-toxic...I've used it to seal cuts on my fingers before, and know a few people who've swallowed some (prying the cap off the glue with their teeth, and then it sprayed into their mouth).

That sucks to lose so many fish

I'm so sorry. That has to suck. I can't even venture a guess as to the cause, and actually no one was expecting this. Not any more any way, your tangs were doing so good.
