I have a 56 column with a triton 4 pump (1050 gph). So I figured I had good flow... I had just installed a skimmer the other day, I'm getting some micro bubbles but didn't think it was a big deal...? If the oxygen is low what could potentially cause it?
I think that with a skimmer tho your oxygen levels should be fine

Baron, I should have roughly 20x the volume of my tank in flow (minus 3' head). Maybe ill put 2 diffusers on the output of my pump? It'll give me more reason to get a circulation pump.

Hopefully

I'm taking barons advice and agitating the surface also.
Thanks everyone for the advice... I'll keep you updated on what happens.

How long have you had this set up? The tank that is? Is it fully cycled?

I made that mistake with my fresh water set up, and paid the price. It sucked, but now I am going to go for a Salt Water set up. I am on here studying like mad in hopes to do it right this time.

Good luck with your first. It sucks when a fish dies. My Clown Loaches (Fresh Water) died and it made me very upset. Had them eating out of my hands. :-(

It's a relatively new tank, about 2 months old. It cycled about 2 weeks ago. I have 3+ inches of live sand, over 50# live rock, t5 lighting (going to upgrade in the future to reef capable lighting, in some time tho).
Oh, I also have a liter of matrix in the sump. I have better movement on the top water, hope that's all it is.

Mine sleeps like that all the time... first time I saw it, I thought for sure he was dead. At night, he'll just lay up top on his side and let the current catch him & barrel-roll him around....

It seems better today, not skimming the top of the water like last night. It didn't eat too muck today (but my flakes basically just blow right into the overflow, so they have to act fast). I have to remember to turn off the pump when feeding the flakes.

Still cruising top half of the tank but I can live with that.
