Hmm reading along in this thread I'm wondering if you have something in your tank. Like do you spray air fresheners near it? Or bug bombs? Any kind of chemicals? Seems like A LOT of bad luck. Maybe get a canopy?

How are you acclimating?

I know you said you're experienced but SOMETHING doesn't seem right. Even if fish have ich it won't show until they are stressed out (though, ich might stress them out enough).

Fish room is just that. I don't spray anything in or near it. Canopy sounds like a good idea.... I left it empty so long because I had the same thought that something was in it. Idk... I do like the canopy idea.

Angel was eating and also picking at rocks. Constantly in and out the rocks. It's so weird how they are active and all over the place, then the next thing you know, they are gone... annoying.
I had a Flame Angel for months. Did great and then just topped eating. Sorry about your fish.

I've kept many flame angels and they all lived for years until I broke the tanks down and sold them. I don't find them hard to keep at all.
There are other factors, besides the obvious acclimation and parameter issues to think about. For instance, collection techniques, shipping stress, parasites, etc.

Quick update. Fish are good. Trigger is still shy. Have a butterfly fish, not sure the name, but I'll get pics. He's kinda bland. Also have a dog face puffer. He actually curls up and sleeps on a rock at night... Just like a dog. Eel is sneaky, but good, so is watchman. Nice to have the tank active again.

On a side night. Was going to get a regal tang. My lfs held it for a week. Went back in to get it, and they told me no, I couldn't get it today. Asked y, they said it had a couple of spots and they weren't going to risk my tank for the sale. That is y I like this place. Actually care for their customers over the $$$$. So my question is this. If they sell it to me, do I put it in a hypoed QT or just QT it? They won't sell it unless it has 0 spots. I'm not trying to screw up again...
