Dude, not trying to be a smart arse, but you need to do some serious reading on ick and what may have caused it. If the tank was stable for 5 months, at that size, you were prolly riding on the coat tails of the previous owners efforts. I'm not saying you don't know whats going on but not treating ick is a sure death sentence as you have now learned. Again, before considering any further stock or even steps to recover, please read. Lotsa good info on google. Once your armed with good (lots) info, you'll be ready to take another much more educated swing at it.

Best of luck!

Was anything added recently? The quick deaths got me to thinking maybe it was marine velvet.
Even if it was, the fallow period is a must. IMO

Couldn't agree more.

I did lots of research on this and did know how important it was. I was miss guided by someone at a LFS who even took time out to come over and look at my tank in the first few months. This person seemed to have as much interest in my tank as his own reef tanks. I really had 100% trust in him. Now I have none. the only thing I could think is that he needed to move some supplies this month. I really was let down by this person. I now need to move on and any info you have for me would really help.
