Went to LFS and they had nice misbar ocellaris clowns for sale. I picked up a pair. They are hanging out by Umbrella coral right now with lights dimmed. Excuse the dirty glass. Water change happened yesterday.

I went thru the very same thing the first couple months I started up my tank ( fish would die in a week or so but corals were doing great) . I think mine was a combination of a lot of things ( parasites , acclimation , WC , etc.)

What I did was add a uv sterilizer to the return line of my CF and went fish less for about 6 weeks, and did a lot more research about acclimation.

Now I acclimate using the drip method for around 2 hours and I have not had any issues since.

Hope my 2 cents helps... KCCO

Thanks. I could come up with a long list of things I might have done wrong from overcrowding to overfeeding.
