I appreciate everyone's help in this matter. An update to my original post...the third and last chromis was found dead this morning. I found him stuck up into the intake of the powerhead. I checked him closely over the last couple of days and I can guarantee that he had no spots of any kind anywhere. My water parameters are excellent, he ate well, and really got along with his tankmates. The other fish, 2 clowns and coral beauty seem to be doing fine. I also have a yellow watchman that has paired off with a pistol shrimp living under my live rock. I will set up a QT today just in case of a breakout. In the future I was thinking of adding marine plants, wopuld the plants need to be quarantined before intorduction into my display tank?

Green Chromis are one fish I did not have luck with either. I had 2 out of 5 mysteriously disappear, 1 of 5 found dead and then I returned the other 2 back to the LFS. Some people QT anything that is wet. I just QT fish. Never had any plants though.

It depends on where the item comes from. Coral from a fish free frag tank may not need to be QT'd, but there are other organisms that infect corals, so they should also be in QT for a short period to make sure they are not carrying anything.

All fish should be QT'd too.
