When complete wipeouts occur.

No warning and the first sign usually a dead fish, within 24 hours complete closure of approx 300 to 400 zoas and then complete meltdown.
Major water changes seem to have no affect as the problem has already taken hold on the demise of the stock.
My thinking ,narrowed it down to the sand bed that may have a shelf life before it turns rogue with a massive build up of something, I would have thought Nitrates but always tested fine. I say thinking sand bed as my 4 tanks that are bare bottom have never had a problem.
I was wondering if anybody else has ever had a similar problem and if they found the cause.

Bloody hell don't say things like that. He'll get a big head lol
i think Chopchop could be right, just because its roughly the same period everytime
Might be worth giving the sand a stir when you do a water change if you don't already. I do mine once a month before I change any water.

something to take a note on..My tiger shrimp has been digging everywhere around tank. Not sure if its good or bad but thinik its doing more negatives.. PLanning on syphoning out few part of sandbed out at a time during WC..and probably go bare-bottom in future. my tank is a mess atm.

As I said in the bare bottom tanks never a hitch, could possibly have been overload of zoas and palys but one lesson learned only sand collecting palys in a sand bed tank. Could also be a bad batch of NSW but then again one tank never had it. The two year thing may have just been a coincident.
