the bubble is clear and breaks up right when it hit the surface like any other bubble.

but since i switch my lighting to 6 hours its getting a little better so i guess ill just do pwc and cut the lights and see if it will get everything back to normal and i found my source for the high nitrates, one of my devils hand died without me knowing.

once everything gets back to normal ill have pix right aways ill keep you guys updated.

My suggestion to you is to test your source water from the LFS yourself. His test could be wrong. Water quality is key and if you are getting poor water then it's hard to control what happens in the tank.

The best thing you can do is get your own RO/DI unit and make your own water. Depending on an LFS is scary IMO!.
