Oh no, not the mandarin!! I'm so so sorry.....

You've worked so hard for them....I don't believe she's gone. :-(

One of the stars legs is completely gone now so I'll see how it is in the AM. He's still climbing around on the glass.

It must have been reading your thread and wanted to prove that it was an amazing climber with less legs... sorry I had to make the joke.

LOL. It's all good. I know starfish aren't the easiest to keep. Just wish stuff would stop dying.

This is gona sound odd but can you test for stray voltage in your tank perhaps something is zapping them when they get to close.
I went back and looked at the pic of the dead fish it looked like some of the trout we used to zap for tagging,
we used a 12 volt batt. and two screens if they touched the screen when the charge went through it caused some blotches that looked the ones your tang had.

I never thought of stray voltage, theres not much electrical in the tank other than the powerheads. The heater is in the sump.

Ok, the update for the tank is kinda not good. I had to remove the starfish, he had just one leg left and was looking ROUGH....Also my Xenia melted last night, I'm pretty sure it's the phophates, they are at .53 AGAIN!

I think it's safe to say that the live rock I have is leeching phosphates from when I bought it. I've had this ongoing issue for months. :-( I finally got them almost under control in the 55g and now it's starting again.

Boo.....
