Question I need HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have a 39 gallon tank. It's been up for around 3 years. I only have 2 of the 8-10 original fish left, Bicolor Dwarf Angel and a Banggai Cardinal. The rest just vanished. I have Yellow Star Polyps and something I just picked up not sure what it is. I do semi regular water changes. I have had different corals that have all died. At that time I was doing weekly changes. Water tests are always good. Not sure what to do.

Not knowing what you bought and put in is a good indication that you may not be educating yourself on proper husbandry.
Also, in a tank so small, how do you handle top offs? I have a buddy with a 46 and his salinity swings are drastic because he is lazy and doesn't have an ato

Yes I do use RODI. And yes I do lack on educating myself. I come from a fresh water background. I have tried to understand the ways of the salt. My salinity seems to stay stable. When I top off I check to make sure of the levels.

All I mean is, you added a coral you don't know what it is. It could be a leather that releases toxins. Do you QT your fish? Do you run carbon? Your salinity may not swing drastically, but it can be just another stressor.

No I do not. I know I should but do not have the space. There are pictures in my profile I think. I am not sure what the polls are. I am color blind. Petco could not find the tag and sold them to me for $15. If the pictures are not there let me know how to put them up, please.
