Default What is the one thing to check?

Let's say you have set up a marine aquarium and have cycled it etc. However, Everytime you introduce some hardy fishes, they all die very quickly within a day. What is the first thing to check?

I understand there are a number of parameters to look at. Is there one gadget that one can buy to measure all the important parameters instead of individual test kits?

Thanks for your advice.

I checked all the parameters ok. However, the corals, clown fish etc didn't last more than two days in the tank. Sigh.
