How much live rock you got in there? Did you add all your fish at the same time?

No LR and running HOB filter. And put in 3 damsels awhile back, one died and two weeks later two clownfish.

This could very well be the problem. Have you cleaned the hob?

API test kit uses a 2 part test which means you may be testing foe only ammonia. That means your levels are still very high and toxic.

Do you have sand? I am just trying to work out where your BB is. I don't know much about mechanical filtration but having no rock could be why your tank is properly cycled? Hopefully someone else can give an opinion here. You def need to do some major PWC to get that ammonia down, those fishes must be suffering!
