All fish dead

Hey everybody,
This morning I woke up and all of my fish except for a clown fish were all dead. The water was cloudy too. I checked the salinity, PH, nitrate, nitrite, and they all are fine... Can anybody tell me what happen or what to use so I can bounce back from this.
Thanks!

How is your aeration of the water, only thing I can think of is you may have somehow lost a lot of dissolved oxygen

Yes just checking to see if you had sufficient place for air exchange. Ie no stagnant water.

There's something in your water. What test did you run and the readings of the test and the test kit used if you are using API you should have a different test kit to match it against cause API are know to give problems.

And you are sure you did not overdose with the stress coat I think that can kill fish if you do.

IMO if everything was fine the night before you added stress coat I would start there.

just for future reference, its not uncommon to see tangs change shades. even color. this happens when they are stressed, but also happens when they are excited. furthermore, they can turn a darker hue at night to blend in better. just be careful when adding chems to a tank

I think you may have over dose on the stress coat cause all your problems started when you added it to your tank.

I'd take some sample water to your local tropical fish store to test (if you have one near). That's terrible! Hope it all works out.
