Any marks on the fish after they die? If it were a critter getting them I would suspect torn fins, red gills, something like that. What test kits are you using? I use API but after buying them I found out they are not the best. Could be you think you have good readings but something isn't test right. Have you matched your readings by one done by a LFS out of the same water sample?
Yes it was a typeo I meant 1.023-1.024
And yes all three green chromis were half eaten or cut up but my goby was half under the rock when I found but there was room for him to move

And Im using same API and this other kind to differnt types but I get the same result I aslo took it to lfs a few days ago and got the same reading the only thing that was a little low was my caluium But it's rises sense and thxs

What type of live rock did you get?? Possibly Florida live rock?? They get mantis shrimp - I know, I got two. And they will kill your fish.

Just a possibility.

How about taking a water sample to a LFS and double check your results. It could also be where you are getting your fish at.

could have been the bristleworms, they can be nasty apparantly, but dont think that will be the end of...... live rock can be host to many terrors and they could be the nice guys lol.

bristleworms are not going to eat living fish. but clearly you mentioned the chromis were half eaten, how long before you found them. did they die and clean up crew got to them? or were they dead because they were attacked

I found one an hour after it's been missing and the two about 6-12 hours after they went missing
