It seems like from the little research I have done that even if the fish survived the death of the sea apple they may never fully recover. Are you running your skimmer wet enough to pull out anything that might be left over from its death? When you say bio filters do you mean bio wheels some of the hob filters use if so those should have probably been changed as well.

I know I would replace as much disposable things in a tank I could if it was nuked including anything to do with the filter like pads, wheels, charcoal, and chemi pure.
