A few months ago I got a tang. The tang wouldn't eat and eventually died. It wasn't a few days later all my fish started dying. All my fish died within weeks except for my two wrasses. Since then I've tried adding a few fish, with them only lasting about 3 or 4 days. However, my wrasses are still alive and corals are doing amazing. So, what gives!!!???

I haven't really tried anything other than giving the system time. I'm gong to give a uv sterilizer a try though.

UV won't work against a parasite. With the not eating and 3-4 day window, and no visible signs of ich, it really sounds like flukes. Try prazi. It can be safely dosed in your main display and for something as deadly as flukes is a pretty easy fix.

Prazipro is some pretty good stuff if you know what you are fighting against.

Cool! I'm not real sure what I'm up against, though. At first I thought marine velvet.
