What were the symptoms? How long did you have the fish? Did you add add new fish recently?

If I'm not mistaken you had nitrate and algae issues, lost some fish a month ago due to Brooklynella or whatsoever. My advice is deal with one problem at a time. And don't buy anymore fish until you understand each step of keeping a marine aquarium. Oh, and btw post some pics of your tank please...

Will say this, your emerald crabs aren't killing fish. Sally crabs, maybe.
