Oh man, can't even say it's the lfs stock. It sounds hollow, but sometimes these things happen. It sounds like you;ve been doing everything correctly and the water is fine so I see no immediate reason. And thats the part I hate. At least if something was off you could have a clue but with water stable it may remain a mystery. Have you checked the temperature and ph? even the salinity? Those are the only things I can think....

lol Yeah, you may have some adjusting to do. I place mine higher up and the flow more upwards to avoid the sand piles. It's alot of trial and error with me to get the perfect flow going.

Yeah. 1.022, temp 75, ph is 8.0, low, but I'll check later since the lights just came on.

If it;s working for you then it's probably fine. I've just seen most people at about 78 -81 degrees. I didnt mean to worry you or anything. lol
