Carey did you have it running the whole time with the 125?Do you think maybe the skimmer not broken in and working properly could have contributed to your recent losses?With it pulling that much out now maybe that was the problem.
Just a thought.

I setup the skimmer the day I setup the sump. It took about a week or two to break in and then i added the fish. I'm not sure excess organics could have killed the fish, i sure hope not! lol

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
