Around Friday I lost my Psychedilic Mandarinfish really quicly, one minute he seemed ok but has a clear slime like ooze coming off him. Later that day my clownfish became covered in what looked like a mild case of ich. The next morning my coral beauty was covered in what looked like ich, and his eyes were totally clouded over., and he seemed to have patches of a velevety fungus. Also he was swimming upside down.
On Sunday both my Coral Beauty and Eibli Angel that I have had for years were dead, and my clownfish were well on thier way. They died this morning, all afflected with small ich like spots and a weird patchy but almost tumor like fungus. In addition to the fungus they all had clouded over eyes.
I removed the purple tang for ich a while back, he is being treated with Copper and Pima Fix. Also the water's salinity is at 1.016 .
I dont know what is plaguing the fish in my reef tank. The Royal Gramma, Six Line Wrasee, Green Chromis and Firefish all seem rather immune to whatever this disease is. It seems like if a fish is spotted with it, literally only hours later they are dead. My corals seem ok. So far I have taken the following actions...
Added Ruby Reef Kick Ich and Pima Fix.
Since this is a reef tank I am assuming that any other medications would be negative to add, for now all of the sick looking fish have died with the exception of the lawnmower blenny, he looks rather ill.
Any suggestions on what action to take from here, and what to do to make sure when I add new fish they dont die suddenly from whatever has plagued my tank.
I tested all the levels and here are the readings.
Nitrite: 0.0 ppm
Nitrate: Less than .5 ppm
Temp: 76 degrees F
Any ideas would be greatly appreceated since this has been a terrible tragedy!
