What? Alkalinity?
If so what brings this up?
Also the calcium in the new tank is 520. I have oceanic salt and it says more calciumon the jug.
I also have Kent marine salt and it says high calcium also

Are you using RO/DI water? I've never heard of a salt mix reading out at 520 out of the package.
You can bring up your ALK using a ALK Buffer or Baking Soda.

Best to find out what your RO CA was reading out at. Sounds as if it was high.

OK I just noticed that the one Clown that is still alive has some whitespots/marks on it and the Cardinal looks like one of his fins is kinda freyed or shrinking.

Ok. I didn't think it was the water, was just making observations there, trying to get it jsut right so they werent' stressed out. White Spots? Or marks, there is a big difference in the Diseases with the Clowns.

But, you could FW dip the fish just in case, this should help in both cases. Marine Ich or Brooklynella

I remember now the Coral Beauty was the first to go and it had white spots also.
here is a pic of the clown. The cardinal had one side fin shorter than the other and they both look frayed

Marine Ich. The fins get tattered from them swiping on everything. FW dip and Hypo in QT will rid the fish of this disease. But you can't put them back into the DT for 6 weeks.
