a solid 1.0 of nitrite is a problem. how long has the tank been up? do you age your PWC water before changing? What your SG?. Did your tank fully cycle? 1.0 is not good

Does the fish look to be beaten with ragged fins, reddened areas, etc? How are the other fish behaving?

My test kit is out i will go buy a new one today.

Tank has been up 3 months.

The butterfly back fin is a little torn up, but they dont show any aggression when I see them either from far or near.

Other fish are fine.

They would not be showing aggression at this point in time, but I have a feeling there was aggression at some point if the back fin is a tad torn. You need a larger tank for the trigger. By chance, is your NO2 (nitrite) measurement in ppm? Just curious since NO2, in ppm, does not pose a threat to marine fish unless within the 100's+ and even invertebrate larvaes are able to withstand 10's of it before succumbing. If anything you can perform a 25% water change, wait a couple hours, and then another 25% water change. Placing some cover around the animal may also help...can you get a pic of the animal?

The butterfly died

I did a 30% water change Nitrate was 70ppm. Ammo and Nitrite were, 0 pH was 8.2, and SG was at 1.024

By chance, does your office get cleaned by morning cleanup crews? Thinking along the lines of chemicals used to clean windows, desks, etc? I don't think NO2 and NO3 were problematic enough to cause death and most likely picked upon or possibly internal injury evading. Just my .02...sorry for the loss

I agree with Innovator here. It could very easily been something from the office cleaning crew that got into the tank.

Captain is correct as well you may want to fine the trigger a new home.
