    I Can never see any animal die like this in front of me and i can't save it. Also ill be running a qt 24/7 so i dont have to run incase if emergency. Currently for 3 mnths ill be solving whatever major or minor problems i have as i wont add fish, will be getting corals though and may be some inverts.

    Its hard for some to lose a living creature but fish sometimes die for no apparent reason. I just lost a blenny, it was eating very well, very active, no signs of illness....it died overnight.

    I think you are on the right track but I wouldn't add anything more to the tank until you know what all the Water parameters are at.

    Get all your equipment and system set up, get all your test kits, test the water, get it stable, then work on adding your corals.
