From what ive read i would strongly recomend not buying more fish. taking that clown out and treating it with formalin and wait a couple weeks before introducing anything else to your tank. by any chance did you find your dead fish really really white and covered in slime? moreso than a regular dead fish?

Clown was taken out of the tank 5min after his death he was full of slime. This happened over night. Yellow tang became weak and died today. His face had black spots but not like black inch more like somethin was eating at him.. He stopped breathing and was out of the tank right away. I'd hate to see the larfer clown die as well

the stress of your light being on for so long. it could have brought the dormant illness out.

does your last clown appear to be breathing rapidly. maybe swimming a little aimlessly. any white patchs or excess mucas coming off him?.

id strongly suggest getting some formalin and treating him

well the steps i took when i figured out what was killing my fish were

Fresh water Dip my fish>Drip bucket with tank water (from tank they were removed from)>QT tank treated with hikari Ich X. ran treatment for almost 2 weeks before i was confident that my fish were clean>treatment with another anti ich medication just precautionary as the stress from the formalin treatment could have brought other parasites with it>drip back into the DT and make sure that you dont get any treatment water in your DT. although formalin is aparently reef safe i wouldnt trust it.

hope that helps you
