I hate to report this to everyone.. but more has died.. I can't seem to stop it no matter what i'm trying. I did the water change and this morning another of my O. clows was dead. the water perameteres are fine, so it must be some parasite/disease taking out its wrath on my tank.... Pray for me... hunderds of dollars lost and still climbing

Do any of your fish have spots or a mucas looking covering kinda like velvet?

Also has anyone used chemicals around your tank lately? Like glass cleaner, carpet deoderizer, fabreeze, etc...

Sorry to hear. Can you check your PH right now and report?

Just taking some stabs here.

With ca running in the 700's your alkalinity is probably tanking. 1st stop dosing everthing ...second find out what the alk is and wc until you are back in normal ranges for alk, ca and mg (Typically 8 - 10 dKH, 450ppm and 1350ppm respectively). One of my fav articles...

Peace.

Start running some fresh GAC or Chemi-pure as well.

I’d also run Purigen along with Chemi-Pure. Both are excellent products that help tanks that are “off” immensely. Great products for maintaining pristine water quality also. Make sure if you do use them to rinse both off vigorously in ro/di water before placing in the filter. The dust if not rinsed can damage corals. I’d run them for a maximum of one to two weeks then remove or switch up to GAC again. The resin turns brown as it absorbs the chemicals.

So sorry for your loss Dosing without testing is always risky as you are finding out. Best of luck to you with the rest of your stock. Did your ph crash with such a high ca level?
