I'm sure many will disagree,but IMO doing a 15% water change every two weeks is enough.Once your tank has cycled and all your parms are in line doing a 20% water change every week is not necessary unless you have an emergency situation.Water changes,no matter how careful you are with exact temp,salinity etc. do still stress the fish and corals some.

im not done catching up but dont!!!!! you had a set back. do not give up!!! even successful aquarists fail. but thats how they become successful. take it as a lesson that even if we do everything right. something can still happen beyond our control...

Yeah seems strange, that many fish don't just die for no reason if the parameters are correct. If there's no sign of ich, it may be you put your hand in the tank with something that would effect them? That or something like a spray around the tank may have gotten in?
