dead compressed toby, sick clown and tang

1. Type & how long you have had it: 3 months
2. Current lighting & Bulb Age: LED reef bright
3. Nitrate:3ppm
4. Calcium:
5. Phosphate:
6. Alkalinity:
7. pH:8.2
8. Salinity:1.026
9. Temperature:79
10. Liquid or strip test kits:liquid
11. Location in tank:living room
12. Current amount of flow: 2x 750gph ph, power filter(for flow)
13. Current tank dosing regimen:
14. Nearby coral:
15. Explanation of problem: My tank has been running flawlessly. Perimeters have been perfect. I just added two small pieces of coral. As of last night I had 2 clowns, yellow tang, and compressed toby(which is now dead). I notice my yellow tang is being sluggish along with my one clown. The tang seems to have a thin coat of fluff I guess I would call it all over his body. I did put in ich treatment this morning thinking thats what it was at first but now im leaning towards possible fungus in dont know?? My clown also seems to have a thin white coat on him too. What should I do?? I will be doing a large water change tomorrow....

Look up marine velvet. Hope it's not, but the "coat of fluff" description leads me to believe it could be.

Don't treat with copper for the ich in your DT. Hope you find out what's wrong.

Just wanted to update everyone that today was a hard day. I had complete tank wipe out. I dont know what exactly caused it I am assuming velvet.
