it could possibly be the different temps of the water that caused the SG to be different. did you make sure the temperatures were the same?

the change can stress some fish out, and depending on their envirnoment, like the reason for the emergency water change, won't help things.

i think the best way to change water it to pump the water from your mixing bucket with a power head and empty the water the same way. i doublt the fish would notice the difference as it'll just be cycling the water like the power head would

How did you get the nitrate level to go so high? When was the last time you did a PWC? What are your other readings?

I did a 6gal water change a week ago to help with a cyano outbreak then that cleared and I lost a rabbitfish and they spiked an then I changed yesterday and I lost emperor angel today and they spike again in process of mixing 28 gallons for a water change I am hoping this helps my situation

Sorry for your lost, Son, But you have to keep up on your water changes as this is the only way to keep "Parameters" in check in a closed system. Replacement water is allot cheaper then fish. You need to do at least 15% everyother week.
