Transferred tank and now losing fish

We transferred a 75 gallon tank from one home to another3 weeks ago. Same gravel and live rock and half the water. We added new water to fill the tank up. We had a clownfish that came with the tank along with a purple damsel and another larger grey fish with blue sparkle spots (not sure the type). We have purchased 2 domino damsel and have had them in the tank for 2 weeks. Today we lost the purple damsel and our grey fish is not looking too good. Have conducted water test and everything seems to be at the right levels. The salt is good. The temp is between 78-80 degrees. Is there anything you can suggest to try to keep our fish from dying? On Tuesday we did a 10 % water change. We have a bio filter and 2 power heads.

Moving this to the SW sick fish forum. So you transfered everything three weeks ago and the fish are acting up now? I would say that`s not from the changeover. Any kind of parasites showing? Any heavy breathing? Any ammonia or nitrites?
