was the live rock you added cured
From what you said added 10lbs live rock than 4 hrs later things went south
would lead to me thinking rock was not fully cured throwing your tank into a mini cycle
sorry to see you loosing your stock it definitely sucks
as for water turning milky never seen that issue so have no idea on that sorry

sounds like your rock was uncured and possibly contaminated (Milky Water). Test your water and see if you have an ammonia or nitrite spike
