    awful news sorry to hear this 10 acre

    how long where you out?

    any chance that there was a power outage when you where away, temp climbed and oxygen became defficient?


    do you have anything that is known for having/releasing toxins? as that may have died 1st and taken out the others?

    That sucks!!!! sorry to hear that 10! The first thing that comes to my mind is heat. Next thing I would think could do that would be an anemone dieing. how long were you gone for and who took care of your tank?

    ok when this happened to me, it ended up being a cuc in power head. Cucumber tried to fight the powerhead and lost to the powerhead but killed 100 percent of the fish in my tank. All of my corals survived though as did mobil inverts

    Do you dose kalk either directly or as top off water? Do you have a PH test handy?
