I'm no rocket doctor but a broken impeller blade might cause some issues. I have also noticed more bubbles in my DT. Could this be the issue?

I don't see how it could be putting bubbles in the display. The air has to be coming from somewhere.

I found the fitting from the return pump to the return hose was not attached fully and was allowing water to drip back to the sump. I figure this might be where the air is getting in. I replaced the impeller and am really impressed with the improved flow rate. I also stopped at the LFS and got a new 200w heater. Unfortunately my pulsating xinia has wilted and died. All of my pallies, candy canes and zoas are doing pretty well. I just cross my fingers and hope it all turns out well.

Your xenia dying is a blessing, believe me.

Lol I have see some tanks overtaken with it. What would be a good addition that adds a similar "wave" look to the tank?

I like Euphyllia (frogspawn, torch, hammer) and I also like Plerogyra and Physogyra (bubble coral). Both will jiggle a bit in the current.
