The poisoning theory is starting to gain more weight in my mind....It explains alot of the why's in this situation. But is it possible?

Maybe one of the forum leaders will chime in, some of them are really good.

Hey Carey,

Your fish problem has been driving me crazy and I've been looking around for a couple weeks now. I think I *might* know what it is. The symptoms and some of the pictures I've found look and sound just like you posted.

Check out Uronema disease. It causes lethargy, sloughing of skin, lesions and death usually happens in about a day. Once outward signs are present there is nothing you can do. Normally the most stressed fish die first. Closely related to Clownfish disease but it's a different strain.

Hope this helps.

I have been reading up on this for the last hour. alot of the symptoms for this were present in my fish, except the breathing at the top of the water and the cloudy eyes.

Also, it says it can come from bad water quality. The tank had only been up a few weeks and the parameters were all normal.

Theres some information on this disease on the net, but I haven't found out what to do with the tank, leave fallow or clean it or what.

I'm gonna keep looking into this, maybe I'll find out what to do AFTER the fish die and if the remainibg ones are at risk still.

Thank you so very much for your research, I appreciate it it like you can't believe.

That goes for everyone who has been helping me, I couldn't make it through all this with out you guys.

Huma, believe it or not that picture is of the blue tang. He was a juvenile so he was still yellow. Or at least he was yellow until he died. Then he turned brown.

My clownfish looked exactly like the pictures in this article.
very informative and a good read for you guys just in case. It appears to be related to brooklyenella.

Just sharing what I have so far. I'm in research mode until water change time. I'm planning on doing a huge water change in the 125g today.

Brooklynella hostilis and Uronema marinum | UltimateReef.Com

I think you found your winner.... Or loser, i guess. Great article by the way and it makes perfect sense that the copper dip didn't work. The only defense here would've been a quarantine. Great call by the guy who found it!
