Okay here's a rundown of what I have
1) 6 stage to/di
1)8bulb t-5 tek light
1)Eshopps protein skimmer
1) marineland emperor 400
1) marineland magnum 350
1) marineland magnum 350 pro
1) grounding probe
2) powerheads "high flow rate"
100lbs of live sand
50 lbs of live rock
A ton of cerith snails
Lots of zoanthids
A purple haze monti
One coco worm
One feather duster
Bunch of blue leg hermits
10 turbo snails
NO FISH!!!! "That's the problem! They die fast!
I use seachem products
Both trays in my emperor 400 I use phosgaurd I have never replaced it or removed it because I'm at a zero reading on phosphates and silicates
I also use the rite size e carbon filters in the 400.
In my magnum 350 I use the micron filter
In my magnum 350 pro I use 1 bag of seachem purigen and activated carbon and de-nitrate
I dose with dts phytoplankton twice a week at 20 Mls
Dose the iodide one a week at 15 Mls
Prime once a week at 15mls
Reef buffer, stontonium, as directed once a week
Calcium, alkalinity as directed one a week (not within 24 hours of each other)
Purple up once every two weeks in place of calcium as directed
Biozyme I've only ever used twice as I am unsure if I feel it nessacerry last used over 2 months ago
I have magnesium although I've never used it.. Never had poor mg
tank has been set up and established for well over two years
HAVING SAID ALL THIS, I ran into a problem.. All fish died within like 24 hours of each other about 2 months ago, I attributed it to velvet.. Although I didn't check to be sure that's what it was.. And all zoas are closed.. Seem healthy and plump "no signs of any zoa disease" also no zoa nudis or spiders.. Coco worm shot its "tentacles" and since regrown them but with very little feathers on it.. Doesn't look nearly as healthy or full as once did..
Feather duster seems to be stressed coming out of tube rarely...
Purple haze monti is turning white
all snails seem fine..
Had two cleaner shrimp, they died with the fish death. Had an arrow crab, died bout a week before fish death..
And now every time I add a fish twice in the past 2 weeks it does fine for almost 24 hours and then breathing goes to crap and dies..
All parameters are perfect... And I have tested for stray voltage which there is none!
So please help me figure out what is wrong, if you do and help me fix it, I'll send you 100$ I am very frustrated and just want to tap out and sell it all.. But would rather it fixed and problem solved because I love the hobbie! Thx in advance .... Stephen
