Not Looking Good

When I got home today from work everything in my tank looked off. My xenias were not out and pulsing like usual, my mushrooms were not bright and opened and my royal gramma was hiding under a rock and still hasnt come out, which is unusual.

I tested the water and its- PH 8.1
Nitrites-0
Nitrates-0
Ammonia 0
Salinity 33 or 1.024
Temp 79
I run 420 watts of VHO, skim, and use carbon.

I'm more or less thinking out loud, but does anything stand out as being a problem?

Oh, tanks been setup for two months fish has been in for two weeks and LR has been in for two months.

None of your test results are out of acceptable range.

Did you do a water change recently? Feed with something you haven't before? Add a piece of equipment to the tank? Add live rock?

My last water change was a week ago. I have been trying new foods, reason being, my Kole tang has not aquired a taste for anything so far. The only thing he eats is the diatom in the tank. He puts his nose up to brine shrimp,spirulina and the 3 different frozen foods I've tryed. I heard that they are known for not eating right away.

I havent added any new equipment or rock, two new frags though, 5 days ago.
