third fish died UH OH!!

So, one of our clowns died a few days ago and now today at 11:45 pm my tang and flame angel just passed away. I did a 10% water change because the calcium was super high. What is going on? And how can I save my tank??

I did dose calcium because it was extremly low at one point and then I stopped. I do not have an ro/di unit yet, so I bought a phosphate reactor (phos X) to battle that demon and then boom, calcium shot through the roof.

Could that be the reason Im crashing? I still have one blood shrimp, an O clown, 2 blue damsels, foxface, sand milk goby and lawnmower blenny.. they all seem ok.
Then again... the flame angel looked perfectly ok too, it happened in a split second

Try another 10% water change. I always do a 20% WC.

Your best defense right now is water change after water change. I would do 20% to start every day then every other day for a week or so. Just make sure you use well aged aeriated SW. You will be busy.
