EMERGENCY in a 30g

My new lionfish (2 inches) recently died because I couldn't get it to eat. Or so I thought. That was about an hour ago. But my snowflake eel (12 inches) is acting majorly weird too and just threw up a lot of food. Usually he's at low hiding but now he's watching the surface in the top rocks! But here's the scary part, I can't find anything wrong with my water!

Nitrate = <5.0
Phosphate = <5.0
Ammonia = < 0ppm
Temperature 23.3 degrees Celsius

Just did a 5g water change on the 30g
Any ideas?! The few corals I have seem to be alright. Is it a sickness possibly?

Ps. I know a 30g is too small for medium to adult of these two creatures, but while waiting to upgrade my tank I researched many successes at keeping them at least six months in the tank as juveniles.

I think I might've been a little unclear, I got my volitanlionfish 3 days ago and couldn't get him to feed

I'm an idiot. There wasn't enough oxygen in there. He's doing fine now.

Are there any powerheads in the system? That should provide what is needed...
