Couple things. Probably need more rock. Certainly need more flow. With your double size skimmer it should be skimming quite a bit if set up correctly. How often do you replace your carbon and pads? Do you clean the hob filter?

Are you using the original substrate and was it disturbed like putting them in another container and placing them back to the tank when you moved it to your place? If so then that is the problem. You should have replaced the substrate with a new one.

Yea I found out after the fact that I should have at least cleaned the sand. But that was 5 weeks ago. It did drop back down to 10ppm today

That 10 is temporary cause it will go up again. You will have a hell keeping it low by replacing water more often than usual.

It normally stays at 10. I've had it to zero a couple times but it always goes back to 10
