well, we know now that the peppermint shrimp were only "cleaning up" the dying flesh.
ok..what did yuo doo up to 2 weeks before this, and are you still doing water changes now?
also, what lighting do you have over the tank and when did you implement it?

I have t5 at 54 watt bulb x 4 . Its over a 56 gallon collum .. I've come to the conclusion since I run open top.. the kids mustard spayed something that entered the tank.. fravrezze dusting spray.. who knows... I havent done s change since Wednesday ... but I will be doing on tomorrow. One thing I did change over the was switch to reef crystals but I don't think it was thar

that would be a good explanation- the fabreeze or something similar. the 4 x 54 watt t-5 fixture isn't what's bleaching things.
