My appologies for that.

As I said, your best course of action is to fallow the tank. Be sure you get a QT going for your next addition and use the time to make sure all the water parameters of the main tank are maintained and ready for your next addition.

Sorry to hear about you losses. I'm new to this forum and to the saltwater tank hobby but I had also had a similar problem with fish continually dying. I had my LFS check the water levels and everything checked out. Except they were not checking the water hardness. My dKH was low causing continuous death to newly acclimated fish (most would last a week or 2). Since adding a dKH buffer I've had no mysterious deaths. Of course now I'm dealing with an ich/parasite problem

Hope all works out for you!

90-gallon marine tank with a couple clowns and sailfin tang. Several invertes including 12 emerald green crabs, 20 hermit crabs, 3 peppermint shrimp, 6 turbo snails, and a BTA. Protein skimmer with 100-pounds live rock, Total 495 watts lighting w/2-MH, power compacts and lunars. Ammonia & Nitrite = 0, Nitrate = 10, specific gravity: 1.025. Using Sea-Lab 28 and Kalkwaisser to maintain calcium at 400 ppm.
