Thanks for all the help. Ill try 20% every two weeks and cutting back on feeding to start with. I'll re test my rodi water and see if it needs changed, I think my storage container may have not been cleaned properly. Worse comes to worse i'll look into getting a better skimmer.. i'm hearing an octupus skimmer is a lot better than the coralife one, right?

I'm a little bit confused by the octopus hob choices, which one would be best for a 55 gallon? If i;'m going to spend $200-ish I want to make sure I get the right one. In the meantime i'll try several water changes

I bought a Reef Octopus 150 (I think) for a 125 FOWLR I maintain and it was a snap to put together and adjust, and it did an awesome job right from the start, and was relatively inexpensive ($180 shipped I believe). I would definitely recommend their product over Coralife Super Skimmer, I have heard negative things about theirs.

Thanks I have the coralife already and have had some issues with it.. I got it for $50 used though so not a huge loss. I'll have to certainly look into the octopus. Thanks for the input!
