welcome to the forum, your post was in the freshwater section, i moved it to saltwater in hopes for you to get better responses.

i do not know the disease your talking about but if for the not eating issue try soaking the food in a garlic enhancer and/or mixing up their food variety. a mixture of different foods is important for health and lifespan. there are also vitamin enriching products that will increase the foods benificial vitamins and nutrients

This sounds like a parasitical infection. Can you post pictures?

More importantly, the setup of this aquarium raises eyebrows. You have chosen high quality equipment, which suggests you have done research. What I am confused about is your choice of using a Pengion 200 on a saltwater aquarium???? This doesn't fit with the big picture of what you are trying to accomplish.

Do you have live rock in the aquarium? Aragonite sand?

That's a SG of .32 not 1.032. Using a diff measurement. 35ppm is 1.026 so it's around 1.021-2 if i'm not mistaken.
