lost a chromis :( updated Pic

Saw a dead chromis just as I was leaving for work

It was covered in Hermits (Doing their jobs well)
Was running late so I left it in the tank.
Came home to to only a skeleton left and the hermits were still going at him.

They cleaned it up while I was at work lol
I removed the bones and tested the levels

The only thing that has changed in the tank is I took out the fake deco items to make room for some more LR I am getting this weekend

Think he got stressed when I did it?
Use RO water and do bi-weekly PWC
Levels are fine, no Ammonia or Trites Nitrates are .15-.20 ppm

Everything looks fine. Sometimes fish just die. Keep an eye on any other livestock to be sure things are okay. The addition of more LR is a great idea.

I agree that yes some live rock would help your tank out. Add extra filtration to your tank. I`m talking about the LR

OK... More LR and new camera

Went out and dropped some more $$ on LR and decided to hookup my DV cam that has been collecting dust in my closet

Previous photo was with 15#'s of LR this photo is a total of 35#'s of LR
Tank is 29 gal.
