    I'm sure this is too late of a post but it could be the mantis shrimp that spears. It may have hitchiked in some of your live rock. Just thought I would throw that out there just in case because it will continue to happen if this is what it is. I am sorry to tell you they can be kind of a pain to get rid of as well.

    I am also a little concerned that your tank is not cycled. O ppm on all three: ammonia, nitrites and nitrates does not sound right. 0 ppm on ammonia and nitrites is good, but nitrates should be around 10-20 ppm on a cycled tank. But I may be totally off as it sounds like your tank is salt water..... excuse my blunder if this is the case.
