    Hi im wondering if any is experiencing mysterious deaths from your blue green chromis bought at one of the sponsors. I bought 2 batches one of 3 and then they all died in a month and then 5 again same lfs and lost 2 already in a month. My water parameters is good no problem their. My hermits, cleaner shrimps, goby and Cardinal is fine. Im realy at my wits end with this issue hope someone has some answers.

    My chromises killed each other before, I had a lot and now only have 2. They eat and few hours later dead. Never looked into it as I know with my previous tanks I had the same issues. A good friend lost all his and all other fish healthy and sps growing out of the tank
