I did a water change on my reef yesterday and all seemed fine...but this morning I noticed I had lost a fish and the others were breathing rapidly, not to mention my coral isn't looking good now either..I tested and I have an ammonia prob. Could that have happened so quickly from the dead fish overnight? and if so should I do another water change so soon.?

what caused it .... I cannot say. But, I would say you need to treat the ammonia problem asap. Run carbon, do another water change.....look for hidden dead inverts. I had dead snails do that to my 30 gallon tank real fast.

Check your alk levels as well as pH.
