Did you test the water? What kind of water did you do the water change with? What's your salinity?

How old is your tank? Was it cycled? Was there any cleaning around (not in) the tank recently using chemicals? Your recent water change, what was the source of the water? Could the change have caused a mini cycle with an ammonia spike? What are your parameters showing?

Could you please provide some of the details we requested. We cannot provide any help or explanation if you don't tell us about the tank.

However, if you mean that your tank had a nitrate reading of over 200 for any length of time, then that is definitely the killer, in addition to the ph being extremely low, it needs to be 8.0-8.3.

Once again, how many fish did you have in there? Two clownfish is already very overstocked, and if there are any other fish then the reason your clowns died is that you were so overstocked that the tank could not cope with the amount of bioload you subjected it to.

My apologies . I had my tank running for about three months now. I had two clown fish and emerald crabs. Everything is stock on my tank. The only thinf that is different is the filtration system I have a intank 3 stage filtration. I'm using chemi-pure carbon and seachem purigen and poly foam for filters. The levels where in a good reading but I did a 25% water change and the salinity level was at at high at 1.026-1.028 After the water change . I had to drop the salinity so I top it off with ro water . After a day the levels went up and the fish where slowing dying . They eventually all died
