Could Glass Anemone be the culprit, I have a few of these on my live rock and didn't realise what they are until doing a little research.

No more than likely water quality or unhealthy fish

Are you acclimating the fish or just dumping them into your tank?

Yep, drip acclimating them for about 2 hours.

You have 0 nitrate, your tank isn't cycled yet, at least that would be the problem in freshwater, I'm pretty sure it would be the same for saltwater

The tank was fully cycled 3 months ago, correct me if I'm wrong but I thought the Nitrate levels in a FOWLR tank should be immeasurable?

That's why I edited and said in a freshwater tank, only realised you were saltwater after I posted.

It's best for them to be 0 yes. Do you maybe have a weird dose of copper or some contaminant in the tank??? Have you spilled anything toxic in?

Just had the water tested at my LFS and he got the same results as me, he recommended using Easy-Life just in case there is some other Toxin or contaminant in the water..has anyone else used this product?
