ok, here goes, i have had my tank up and running very successfully for about 5 months now, did the cycle, tested water on a regular basis, did my water changes, i have a pic of my 55 g tank on here also. I had 1 brittle star,4 turbosnails, 10 pyramid snails,2 emerald crabs, 4 blue leg hermits, one scarlet leg hermit, 1 coral banded shrimp, 4 bumblebee snails as my cleanup crew, thought this was ok. Water leverls have always been right where they should, i do my water changes(15 Gal
) about once every 6 weeks. heres what i had as my money fish,, 2 banjii cardinals, 1 scooter blenny,2 percula clowns, 1 yellow seabae, and one candylupus anemone i think its called........1 week ive lost all my fish,,i had a nitrate spike a week ago when i was out of town and thought that might have caused it,,did a water change, got my leverls right, and at this time, i lost my 2 clowns and blenny.....water levels right on again,,,,next day, one cardinal dies,,,,,today(a week later) my other one dies with a bloody appearance on his right side, not damage from anything,,but like bloody dots. i noticed then yesterday but wanted to wait to see if i could find out what to do ,,but now its too late,,,,what the heck happened??
