    Default fish dying

    Today I came home and found my coral beauty dead, my fish are all beginning to loose color, I am confident at least 2 more of my fish are on their way out as well, my midas blenny wont leave the sandbed and has clouded up eyes with loss of color and my red flame hawk has severe loss of color. this guy was bright red days ago and now he's just all faded but behavior is normal with him. Any ideas as to what would be happening?

    Sorry to hear about this.

    Are you in your old tank or new one now?

    Have you collected a water sample for ammonia, nitrite and nitrate?

    this picture shows how much color loss some of my fish are experiencing, he's not quite that white what you get the idea considering this fish should be bright red.

    Need a full list of tank parameters to help you to the best of my ability, and anything out of the ordinary, that you have done, or may have happened, needs to be shared.

    Have you checked your temp? Are the fish breathing heavy? Anything out of the ordinary?

    Would really like to help- dont want to see you sit and watch your fish die one by one...
