What were the tests you did, and how old is the tank and specs and how long have you had your fish?

Define "fine" please. Numbers and have you added anything new, how old is the tank, what size, etc please.

ok have you gone through the ammonia, nitrite, nitrate cycle. what size tank do you have? Salinity should be ok due to you only having fish in there. Normal is 1.024 to 1.026 the ph should be right at 8.2 what is the temp?

How big is the tank? And do you not test for nitrates and nitrites?

your orange clown might live through it due to the hardiness of them, I figured it was your angel that passed.... see every new tank goes through a cycle period and I am so shocked your lfs sold you that angel knowing its so new...

30g, and do you know what the calc? or alk is? also temp should be about 75. and are you using a sump? Did it go through a cycling period? and how long ago did you add the fish? what water are you using and have you done weekly water changes? and do you use tap and if you do, do you clear the chlorine out of it>?

ok, it could simply be the tank is going through the new tank syndrome. they go through and what test kit are you using? also, was there any signs of ich, or anything wrong with the fish at all?
