Help! Have a 28 gallon qt tank fully cycled with 2 HOB filters. Water parameters are 8.2 ph , 15 nitrates. Recently ran 2 tangs through quarantine Kole and a Purple following Humble fish protecal to the T. Treating with Copper power, Metroplex, then using cuprisorb to remove all copper and finishing up with water changes. I followed up with Prazipro treatment followed by another water change. Both fish looked great eating all types of food. 2 weeks after all treatments the Kole Tang slowed down eating, started moving lethargic and couple of days later died. 4 weeks later same process for the Purple Tang. Fustrated by this. Any thoughts of what may of happened. I have a Hippo Tang in my display tank for 3 years now no issue. Any help would be appreciated.

What size is your display tank and how many fish? Did you notice any aggression issues? Were there any other strange behavior exhibited by the tangs before their demise?
