Marine velvet

Hi all. I'm new to this site and also new to this marine keeping game.

Just need advice. My water parameters are 0 nitrate and ammonia. Ph is around 7.5. I have uv steriliser. Water at 1.025 salinity and a kh of about 13. 90 gallon tank and I can't get my fish to survive. I have had some that have survived the outbreak but all my new fish seem to last about a week. Except for my Achilles tang who died of hunger
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Not sure if its the cause but your ph should be 8.0 - 8.2 for salt water. Do you have powerheads? Open lid? What filtration do you run?

So your tank had MV and most of the fish died, but some survived? Did you treat all of them? If so, how? Did you do that in a QT or in your display tank? Ideally, the treatment occurs outside your display and you leave your DT fallow for 8 weeks. If you do not, there is a chance that its still alive and grabbing into your new fish.
