Can't keep fish alive

Still check for stray voltage...

Getting .3-.5 volts

Sorry for your losses. That sucks. I would definitely pull the remaining 2 and qt/treat with prazipro Like others have said.

Did the sand that's currently in the tank come with it when you bought it? If so, how deep is it?

New sand when filling the tank up. >2" of fine aragonite w/ a small cap of special grade sand.

I will have to find a qt tank. I will put up an ad in the marketplace to see if someone has an old qt tank I can borrow.

However, I do not think it's a parasite. I'm not sure if I want to go through the work of a qt for nothing...

Forgot to add that my lawnmower blenny didn't die, it just took a plunge into the overflow. He is back up in the tank and eatting algae.

So the only deaths were both the clowns. The only one that bothers me was the snowflake. I had him for few months now. The other clown was just added and I bought him with pretty badly nipped fins.

Andrew, did you only loose 2 clowns?
Thought you lost
2 bangi
2 chromis
1 lawnmower/1still alive
1 anthias
2 clowns total???

the 2 bangaii, 2 chromis. and lawnmower blenny was back when I very first got the tank, and after thought that may have been from the tank move ?

The anthias didn't make it long after getting him and he was pretty skinny when I got him.

The most recent deaths were the 2 clowns. The 2nd clown that died was very new (2-3 days in the tank).

With this information, I think it's a good idea to leave the fish in the tank, and simply quarantine anything new that you get (coral, fish, snails, etc). The deaths are not necessarily related and can be due to any number of factors. A quarantine tank doesn't only help keep disease out of the display tank, it settles your new fish after a stressful move and helps to get it healthy without having to compete for food.
