Tmc micro habitat 30!! Wiped out stock!!!

Hello I have a micro habitat 30 tank from tmc, I am pretty new to fish keeping, my tank had been cycling for around a year and was doing great! I've recently brought my 1st house and not spent much time on tank, last weekend I did a water change and changed all my filters at once!! After a few days my 2 clowns and small star fish have died now the coral and frags are looking droopy and on there last legs!! Is there anything I can do?? Thanks mark.

Changing all your filters at once may have caused ammonia buildup, sending the tank into another cycle. Only replace maybe half at a time so the beneficial bacteria can buildup.

Also did you test the water you used to change?

I don't know why I changed all the filters at once? All the parameters are sky high now, is there anything I can get to stabilise it quickly? Thanks.

Large water change. Maybe try bottled bacteria to try and build up the bacteria colony in a hurry, biospiera or something like that worked for me in the past.
