I am so sorry to hear this. I don't believe you lost so many fish, words can't describe it I'm sure. :-(

So sorry..don't give up though...

This is by far the worst and most depressing situation I've had with fish. Did manage to save both triggers, the clown , goby and puffer...well so far atleast
