Yes thanks Carey! I usuall do mine every 3-4 weeks so thats probably where the nitrates are coming from! The guy at my lfs
said to change the carbon every 3 months! I am a. **** of a lot happier with my tank now since I bought my RO
unit! The poor fish must have hated me before I got it! I suppose that will teach me to jump in two feet first though!! I've had a look at your 125g VERY impressive! So sorry about your losses though
