You’re water parameters are spot on and fine, must be contamination in the water. I would change out as much as possible with clean brackish water. Then give it a few days and change it out again to be sure.

I’d also stop feeding for the time being.

Good luck.

Like Odin said. Real coral? The main one (btw, looks nice). Did you wash well? Temperature you keep? Closed top?

Thanks odin, i'll try doing it before more unnatural deaths occur :dead:

Yep its real coral skeleton, well i boiled it for awhile and soaked it for afew days in distilled water. Mmm temp of the water is about 20 degree Celsius and the top is covered.

Deaths after moss balls? Or was it there when the tank was set up?
