Yesterday I stopped by a new lfs store I heard about through a friend of a friend. A nice place across town, seemed to be much better priced than the stores closer to my house and the employees seemed very nice and helpful. As I looked around a couple of things caught my eye. A nice rock full of zoanthids, maybe 30 polyps or so for $15, and a bautiful orange ricordia mushroom for $10. Being very pleased with the prices and pleasant employees, I assured the owner of the store I would be back and headed out the door. I got home and dropped the bags in the tank. While the bags were floating I did a small 5 gal water change like I do every other week, along with rinsing the filter sponge in the fuge, changed out the carbon, scaped the glass, and cleaned the lids on the dt and fuge. Within an hour of placing the new corals in my tank they were opened up and looked beautiful. A few hours later before going to bed I cheacked everything out again. All corals looked great..... This morning I was headed out the door for work but wanted to first stop and take a quick look at my new purchases. I couldn't believe what I saw... Zoanthids...dead Ricordia....dead Want to know what's worse? ALL OF MY CORALS LOOK DEAD!. Zoanthids, buttton polyps, star polyps, green, red, hairy, ricordia mushrooms, zenia...everything looks dead! Everything was laid over, looked like goo, and everything had a slime film over it. And even stranger....my urchin that Ive had for 2 years....on his back dead! Both my flame scallops that Ive had forever...dead! Even my three feather dusters look like theyre on their way out the door. Their crowns looked like they were falling apart. Ive had the same three for years! I didnt even know you could kill a feather duster!! All of my fish look fine, coral banded shrimp looked fine. I saw one sand sifter star crawling up the glass, he looked fine. Emerald crab, snails, hermits, all running around just fine. So I checked the water... Nitrate--0 Nitrite--0 Ammonia--0 PH--8.2 Temp--77 Cal--450 Did something get in my tank from my new purchases? The lady that bagged my stuff came in from outside, I didn't notice her rinse her hands off. Maybe she had something on her hands or arms??? She put the bags in a small cardboard box, maybe the box had something in it that got on the bags that were then floated in my tank??? Anybody have any ideas? Also is there anything I can do to slow things down? I just lost ALOT of coral overnight! Im terrified to get home and find my fish or other inverts dead too!
