Only thing I can think of is maybe with all those fish to compete with the less aggressive fish aren't getting food. Depending on what you're feeding them could also be malnutrition. Could also be that if you added all of them without time to fully settle in and get established they could be overstressed. Those are just my thoughts on it, I'm no expert.

Before you net anyone out though I would observe their behavior. Are the remaining fish eating and acting happy? Have you noticed any aggression? Also what size tank do you have?

Well if they're fine I wouldn't mess with them. Good idea to have a qt ready though. My thoughts on a qt are that not only is it good for sick or diseased fish but singled out you can really get them eating well without the competition of other fish. Maybe really watch them closely at feeding time for anyone not getting enough or any bullying. I have a royal Gramma that is downright nasty and he bullied one of my green chromis to death, and actually would chase my flame angel at feeding time. What foods are you feeding them?

Just a heads up, it takes quite some time to starve out a fish. Its also not a pretty sight to behold.

I dont think they starved to death...I think the LFS sold me a sick Coral Beauty and it contaminated the tank. I am a beginner but from talking to several people on a couple sites that sound like the most likely thing

No I just set it up today.
No live rock or live sand just some gravel and fake plants.
Does it still need to cycle?

Yup, gotta cycle it. If you don't, the cycle of Ammonia will kill the stressed out fish. Use a couple pieces of LR or Sand from your DT, that will boost your bacteria fast in there.

Will it still need 4+ weeks to cycle?
