It's the freshwater green spot puffers. They are tiny. 1 to 2 inches max.

And you just threw them into saltwater without any acclimation to higher salinity? Just tossing things into a tank seems to be the theme to your ongoing issue. It can take weeks to raise salinity to a level with fish that can tolerate the raise, like some puffers and mollys.
Similar with your anemone, he wasn't drip acclimated to the new tank. Starting off the cycle of stress.

That's a huge bioload for such a young tank. I'd expect phosphates or nitrates to be high. What's your salinity? Why are you using conditioner with tap water?

The crown fish died few days ago for no reason. My parameter is all 0s, I am using rodi water in a 55 gallons tank.

My tank has one yellow tang, 2 green spot puffers, couple of crabs, one cleaner fish, 2 demsel, 1 snowflake eel, few corals and 2 engineer coby.

Best advice anyone can give you is to start doing research before you make purchases. Another thing is fish just don't die "for no reason", something is going on. Are you using an api kit for nitrates? If you don't follow the directions EXACTLY you'll get a false 0 reading (shouldn't have 0 nitrate anyway as that's pretty much impossible IMHO).

I was pretty much doing the test using API every other day. I have switched over to rodi now. My water is 1.025 salinity

Thanks for the advice.
