I measured the Nitrate, Nitrite and Ammonia levels. They actually look okay to me.

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.

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