So i checked my water and nitrate was a little high, so i changed the water and got it back down bought 2 cleaner skunk shrimp- i acclimated them- but they died. One looked like it had gotten it's whiskers ripped off (still alive.)

What are your calcium readings? It could be a number of things that has happened, so the more info you can give the easier for us to help you.
Can you please post your tank stats here, too? How big, how long it has been set up, what kind of filtration, what kind of substrate (at the bottom), how much live rock, temp, all animals, how often you do water changes, feeding schedule, etc...

I had 2 domino's. Gotten them for the cycling stage. I couldn't even get through the cycle with those 2 killing machines. The other Damsels I had gotten for the cycle started dropping like flys. Chunks taken out of the side of one, others just poof killed. As soon as i figured out the tag-team operaration the 2 domino's had going on, back to the LFS they went. Since then not one issue. I still have a couple blue damsels, one 3 striped, and one yellow tail in a community tank. They are much smaller than the rest of the fish, and all is well.

I was just about to mention you have a lot of damsels in a small tank until I read the above. Another thing could be if you ever treated the tank with any copper products.

no i havent, i have too much live rock and an anemone i know what copper does. i think my damsels killed them.

damsels are just easier to keep and a lot cheaper so i would buy them.
