2. What fish were in the tank prior to the additions, and which one's died? Was the new clown among the deceased?
3. You mentioned the condition of the survivors. Describe "looked very really really bad". Disease? Wounds?
4. How's the coral doing (what type is it)?
Not sure if the new fish introduced a disease (quarantine should be a must but 2 days seems kind of rapid for the demise that you've witnessed).
Thank you for the reply!
1) I use hydrometer to measure salinity. Went from 1.022 to 1.024, I changed about 10% of the tank.
2) Yellow tail damsels, and another clownfish, total of 6. The one I bought is dead, the other one is lying on the side "breathing" very heavily.
3) No wounds or any other signs, except that he is very pale (and lying on the side, at the bottom)
4) The coral looks fine and open. Its a mushroom type, very simple. I also have a little shrimp, which looks OK so far.
