this may sound extreme, but every morning and every night, I check each and every fish for any poor signs, swimming, any spots or marks, or any overall differences from when I first added them, and watch them eat to make sure they are still agressively eating, it may sound extreme, but I also enjoy watching them ! :)

This isn't extreme at all. It should be a part of your every day care for a marine tank. Make sure all the fish are accounted for, paying careful attention to their eyes, fins, and lips. After a while you will be amazed at some of the things you pick up on. Your eyes will be the best test kit you own.

I do this "routine" morning and night, and that is exactly what I check for...fins, lips, eyes, and any unusual body markings, I also check their eating habits, making sure all are eating at feeding time...lol, it is amazing to see them all swim up to the front and follow your every move at feeding time, I especially enjoy this part !
