so long story short i put the live rock i made into my tank a lil too early even tho i tested the ph of it before i put it in.for some reason after it being in there for about 20hrs i come home and my tank is super clowdy all my fish are hideing and corals look like **** zena pulse corals are fallin apart ,they looked the worse supriseingly.i imetitaly did a 50% water change with ro water.today i wake up to see almose every fhish swimin around with no sighn of any dead ones.coral still looks like **** tho.I forgot to mention that before i did the water change i took all the rock out.im wondering if im ****ed and if shuld just set up a smaller tank with new water and my old rock.keep in mind the only size extra tank i have is a 38gal. and i previously had everythin in a 120.someone please give me some good ideas!

My first word of advice is to stop using the profanity that our censor is blocking. ;)

What did you make the rock out of? Sounds like it wasn't fully cured and ready to use. Just do another large water change and run some carbon.
