What's your rodi testing at ? You like to see under 2 ppm.
Have you got a phosphate test kit yet ?
When you bought the tank it was up and running ?
Was it crashed ?
Your rocks could be leaching phosphates to?

Sounds like the same situation I got myself Into ! Ask lots of questions! Use this forum, people on here are always willing to help and have helped me over time fix my tanks ! Just do what people tell you and they won't steer you wrong !

Best thing I ever learned about this hobby is go slow ! Don't rush!

I havent thought of testing the RO water thats a good idea . Yes I got the phosphate tester im going to do a waterchange friday and test before and after everything I can test for I will post results here friday or saterday. The tank was running and healthy when I got it in fact a fish was still in the sand when I got it home (got him back to the store safe) Thank you all so much for helping me I would be lost with google serching everything.

Ya ... My rodi filters plugged because my waste valve failed and my ppm went from 2 to 200 ! In my area that like using tap water!
One of my favourite things about this hobby is that we seem to be a tight knit community and always wanna help and see tanks succeed !

Agreed, it's always good to be able to get a bunch of opinions quick, and nice when you can maybe help someone else who has a issue you've already had
