Those pennies are made of copper. Most inverts are very intolerant of Copper. Who dropped those pennies in ther and why?

The pennies are probably the reason.

Definatly get rid of the pennies and start doing water changes... The copper in the tank is killing the inverts.. I've had commercial tanks go through shark losses that were caused by a couple of pennies that ended up in the filtration (We did'nt notice them sooner due to location unfortantly)..
Run copper tests till you hit zero...can't remember if there are chemical copper removers?
