The quarantine of new fish will help you rule out parasites for sure. I agree that a lot of time it isn't water quality only because most people at this point understand the importance. There are a few things it could be. The puffer having white blotches could be a fungus. Aquariums have fungus spores but fish are protected by their mucus coating on the skin. If they are stressed, handled roughly, have poor water quality, or not getting proper nutrition the fungus has an opportunity to grow. I'm not saying this killed all your fish. Honestly, I'm still really leaning towards your foxface. He may of stressed them out.

What is the temp in your tank?

Temp stays between 76 and 79 degrees and I have about 90lbs of live rock. I also run a media reactor in my sump with matrix media for additional biological filtration.

I dosed 1 cap full a day directly into the DT for about 4 days until I had an ammonia reading just shy of 4ppm. Then I played the waiting game.

Hmmm...I know that sometimes a carrier for parasites or fungus won't get it until everything else is gone. Have you thought about buying something you want that's inexpensive (QT before adding) and putting the foxface in QT when you introduce it to your tank for a bit? You could partition him off from the new fish for a few weeks just to make sure it's not aggression or stress. I can't help but think that the foxface is the issue only because he isn't sick and is doing

Just a short update, it's been about a week and a half and fox face is swimming around his 90 gallon mansion all by himself and seems to be as healthy as ever. Eating like a pig and no signs of stress.
