    Hi guys after spending 2 months of cycling my tank,i lost my cole tang,gem tang,lutent tang,6 chromas,purple tang,jumping bean,yellow tang,and my blue face trigger on its way out,what had happen was last night at 10.30 when i got home i found my bubble master 250 skimmer was going crazy,so after i checked my fish i found all good and all eating,then 2 hours later i saw my wrasse jumping from top to bottom,i then realized i might have a amo spike, so i tested with seachem test kit and found that my amo was off the chart,i then did a 50 % water change and changed my carbon,air rated the water and me of all people was out of prime and stabality,so what i did was every half hour a did a water change and when through the night with out sleep,at 7 this morning i lost 6 fish and the rest through the course of the day,my daughter at 8am this morning told me that my domestic cleaned the tank with windowline and mr muscle shower,after telling me this i called her,and she said that when she cleaned the glass of the tank she had mr muscle
    between her legs and it tipped over into my sump,but the ..... should of called me,so after a total of 5000lts of water change the ammonia is 0, and the other thing is she was told by my wife to stay away from my tank.:(

    Don't do it! I'm really sorry for you, man, but don't give up. Give it some time and do some other stuff for a bit.

    Really, really sorry for you :(
