Any other equipment in you're tank? More info would be helpful o help understand what's going on in you're tank. Equipment and water perameters like salinity

Ok let's see what's in there now.

A cleaner shrimp
And snails.
Had seen a crab awhile back that was a hitchiker but have not seen him in over a month.

Equipment
Sea clone skimmer
Sump
One power head in tank one in sump
Gonna say like 25 pounds of LR AND atleast 10 pounds of base rock.
Sand aggregate

And 2 fish that I cannot confirm that are alive or dead since I haven't seen them today which are a goby and a wrasse. Wrasse I haven't seen in over a week but was gone for 4 days. Goby I saw yesterday before going to bed.

Oh and bristleworms

Here ya go. Nitrates are out of control.

Ph 8.2
Ammonia .25 ppm
Nitrite 0 ppm
Nitrate 80ppm
Salinity 1.023

Used a API saltwater master test kit and a refractometer to test

I know there's probably 2 more dead fish in there that I have yet to find. A wrasse and a goby. I think the wrasse may have been the first to bite the dust. Left in it that's still alive is a cleaner shrimp, and snails.

Should I move everything around looking for the other 2 dead fish. I assume so but wannna make sure first.

Also here's some pics

I would def try and find the dead fish if you think they are dead. Nitrates are extremely high also. I would do a really large water change to get them down, try a 50% and retest the water. Then go from there

I believe invertebrates are sensitive to high nitrates too, it could kill the rest off

Yep so went thru tank and shifted sand but other two fish are MIA. Could the cleaner shrimp and snails and bristle worms had dinner with them?

I'm sure it's possible, I would do a large water change when you can
