Note the clown is still doing fine, do I need to slow down the water changes??
A few pointers based on the above info:
- The Tang would have been stressed in a tank that small.
- The tank may have been overstocked.
- Water changes are your best friends - keep up with those!
Did the Anemone die first?
To tackle algae problems, cut down on lighting, feed every other day and use RODI
water. Do you have a test kit? (ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, salinity - specific gravity - and even phosphate) post your readings here, or get a test kit ASAP. High nitrates and phosphate levels cause nuisance algae.
How long are your lights on for?
Krypt is spot on - excessive or poor lighting can't kill fish, but can cause issues with Anemones and corals, and if the nem died first, chances are it nuked your tank and took out the tank mates with it.
