Thats the other thing i possible thought, Well after a week i had some evaporation lose, So i topped it up with RO water. Not sure if that does contain nitrates, But thought it could have, And the nitrates have only been in the water since i have added that, Well i think anyway.

RO water should be very pure and would not have any nitrates unless your filters are very old and need replacement.

I am not talking about a filter for your AQ. I am talking about the filters on your RO unit.

Then check that water the next time you get some. They may have old RO filters that need to be replaced..

Ok, So now i havent seen my Zebra Wrasse fish in 2 days. He usally comes out when food is out, And he gulps it all up quick.

I've looked through all the rocks with a tourch and havent seen him, Looked into his hole he usally stays in but nothing.

About 1 month ago i lost a firefish/gobie when i brought 2, Its seriously just dissapeared, Was out the day i put it in, Next gone.

And no where to be seen, I think my anenome may have got him.

Could this be the same with the Zebra? Or do you think his causing the nitrate spike? Ammonia - 0 and Nitrite - 0.

Really confused.

You got hermit crabs right? They can make a quick buffet of a dead fish and leave no trace.

I had a crab, Well a hitcher. But i cought him because i thought he ma have killed the goby. Not sure what type of crab it was but it had a red shell with white big claws and like little lumps all over it.

I may invest in a hermit crab.
