Biggest thing I see is that your dosing with out having quality tests to monitor the elements your dosing. First thing I would do is stop dosing, and I'd highly recommend a good test kit for the trace elements (not api)

You think a nudibranch came off? If there is one, there are others...and eggs. You want to do a dip in coralrx or some similar product for pests.
