Flame angel dead

I have lost a blue spotted puffer, kole tang and a flame angel in the past week! None of them showed signs of illness (no white spots or rubbing on rocks) the puffer did lose color and perch on some rocks but people said that was him "sleeping". I had my water tested at 2 different LFS and both said my parameters were really good (minus the high salinity that has been fixed). My tank is 90 gallons with a 20 gallon sump and I am running an in sump protein skimmer. I have 2 fish left in the tank, the fox face that was the 2nd fish added so he has been there for a while and the banana wrasse who is the newest addition( about 2 weeks). And they both look fine and are eating normally. Can anyone tell me what might be going on? Or what I should do?

Get yourself your own kit, test yourself it's good to get into the habit. You use RO/DI water? Can you exact numbers of parameters? I'm sorry about losing that many fish I know it stinks. Something for sure is going on, If I can't help hopefully others will chime in.

I do have my own test kit but I wanted to get a second and third opinion. SG is 1.026
Ph-8.1
Ammonia-0
Nitrite-0
Nitrate- less then 5ppm.

Oh and I use conditioned tap water. Same as with my fresh water aquariums and my 36g SW tank and they are all fine.

Found all of them, no white marks. The tang looked great, full color and not picked apart or anything just laying at the bottom. Te puffer I found sucked against the overflow in pale "sleep" colors and te flame angels colors looked great as well but after he passed the banana wrasse ate his eye out .

I'm still going with the idea that something might be going on with the white patches on you puffer from your "Ich" post a while ago. You said it was mostly when it was sleeping, but the pic you posted was when it was awake and those look like patches, not discoloration to me.

Could that be what'a killing the others even if they aren't showing any signs?
