What is your pH and when was the last water change?
What was the last fish added and how long ago?

Sounds like either a pH related issue or possibly Vibrio.

Cheers
Steve

You`ll need to get a test kit for saltwater PH. It`s important for your tank.

No questions there, it will be very hard to diagnose problems without it.

Do a few more over the next couple of days. If this is a pH problem, it will clear up. If not you will need to treat them. Be sure you get that pH test kits ASAP and post the results.

I would also suggest getting a QT set up, you may need it.

Cheers
