In the past week both of her damsels have died. One of there eyes got bigger and turned completely blue, and then they turned brown.

Parasite?
Diatom Poinsining?

Parameters to come. When I checked them on Monday for her, they were all perfect. Except for calcium, but a water change fixed that.

Everything is good, the only thing that could be an issue is nitrates at 5. But that's nothing so.
