    Sorry to hear it. On the bright side, less population gives the others a better shot. Did you end up leaving them in the tank?

    Yes I got some Selcon but by the time it arrives the other fish ostracized him and he quit eating about 4 days ago. Everyone else is eating the soaked food and are looking a little better. So far so good. Maybe the rest will pull through. The blue tang is 3 and the clowns are a mated pair and are 6 also.

    Damn! I'm sorry for your losses. I've lost a nice lot of fish this year to brooklynella. It absolutely devastated me. Almost took down my tank. I truly believe you did all you can do. I hope to read about a nice comeback from you in the future

    Sorry for the loss. :(

    A couple questions

    1. Did they die in a Quarantine tank?
    2. Did you using any medications?
    3. Is the Angel still in the display, or did you loose that fish as well.

    I pulled 3 out to quarantine and they died with in 48 hours in the hospital tank. I felt the stress and copper did more harm then good so the remaining three I left in the tank and made sure the water was immaculate. the rest died over the course of a week or so. The tang was left in the display and was feeding her Selcon nori twice a day along with Rods food soaked in selcon. Found her dead Monday am and the pair of clowns where dead 2-3 hours later =( And yes the 5-6 year old Angel died. This was my biggest loss cause i hear how hard coral beauty can be, she was a great fish

    Jezzzz that is rough.

    Odd though, it sounds more like Brooklynella but the image of the Tang is Cryptocaryon. I have never had it wipe out a tank of fish.

    Did the other fish present the same why with white spots that look like grains of salt?

    Did you monitor the QT for ammonia?

    I wonder if it was a significantly virulent variation. When was the last time you added a new fish and what fish type was it?
