Need help with fish coming up missing!

You seem to be taking great care of your fish. The only thing that could be happening is bad stock at your LPS. Is there another one near by that you could buy from?

If your ph isn't steady that could explain a lot. Tetra sells these tablet things that go and dissolve in your tank and they are supposed to keep your ph at 7.

i have some neutral regulator but im afraid to add it and cause my ph to change suddenly and kill them. its steady at 6.0 everytime i test it. my ammonia and nitrate are the only thing that changes through the week but i stay on top of it. when my ammonia gets to .25ppm i do a water change that day or the next, but i never let get higher than that

It could either be your fluctuating ph of your ammonia spikes. Btw, here is what I was talking about....... Edit.. I was trying to upload a pic but I kept on getting the wrong pic I'll try again later

The note about it always happening after the lunar lights go on is interesting... Do you have a submersible lunar light, or is it one that sits over the water? If it's submersible, it's possible that it's got a short that is shocking the tank.
