Missed your thread but I highly doubt it was the yeast. It is a single cell organism that I don't think can survive in sw.im guessing it was something else

You're welcome! no prob!

All unnecessary sarcasm aside,

Don't worry about it. Yeast is quite literally EVERYWHERE and on every single surface in the house. It is also falling in your tank constantly.

The fish and shrimp likely died due to some other reason. Did you test the parameters at all during this? What is your salinity? What about tank water change schedule?

Thank you guys

I was doing 20% water change every 10 days and my salinity was 1.025...parameters was normal as always ...and notice my friend's shrimp also dead in the same night and also the fish afterwards...i think i am going to concentrate on freshwater as the saltwater is so complicated..thanks again guys
