I just don't see one week giving way to this kind of water readings though. But you really need to get those numbers back in line fast.

ok, so i did yet another water change, but all my fish are dead... what may have happened, is that the diamond goby died the day i left, and it stayed there for a while, because when i got it out, it was rotten, and the CUC didnt bother cleaning it up

TIme to get a new CUC. Yours are lazy. I don't really want to throw this out there but, I lost a Scopus Tang recently, couldn't find him for love or money, then when I was cleaning the tank I found all these bones, I know not a pretty sight. But, my CUC picked him clean. Or I should say my CUC and the Bristle Worms.

I just recommend Snails, because hermits tend to pick at Corals if they can't find any food. But there are many out there that house Hermits with no issues. 5-6 Turbos. 5-10 Bumble Bee Snails. 10-15 Hermits of some sort. Mix and match, but something along those lines.
