I balanced the pH with the stuff my fish store gave to me. My midas blenny is laying on the bottom. He is pink, and his eyes are all fogged over. Please help!

How much did you raise the pH? What was it and what did it end up at? Too much of a change can kill a fish quick.

Also be sure your test for ph is accurate. If you are mistaken in the original number it can get very bad.
Get a ph meter and be sure it's calibrated. Better yet, balance calcium, magnesium, and alkalinity (calcium 420, mg 1280, and alk 8.3-9.3) and your ph will tend to stay in line. I don't trust ph adjuster chemicals in marine applications.

Its very unlikely your pH was 6, unless you had massive die off or poored acid in the tank. Its probably a bad test. That said, because its a bad test kit, its likely much, much higher than 7.5 right now...

Good to know. I had a flame angel that died of ich, and we were treating all the fish for that too. We just had a major die off, now were left with only corals and inverts...
