More problems since the move.....

Well it's pretty much been nothing but problems since I moved my 110g to my 200g. I lost 2 acro's to RTN about a week after the move and have lost one since with 2 more on the way out. The two on the way out start of dieing at the base and just spreading up. I have no idea what is going wrong but everything tests out great.

Amonia/nitrate/nitrite 0
CA 430
ALK 7.8(a little low but slowly raising it)

Today my yellow tang went missing that was nice and fat for probably 4 months now. There is nothing that could have killed him in the tank...the only possible thing is a bright red/orange serpent but I can't imagine there is anyway he could have taken down the much larger tang. I also lost a teardrop maxima a few days back.

This hobby is really becoming much more of a chore and hassle than it is fun

When you moved the tank did you transfer the sand bed? If so what condition was the sand bed in when you moved it? Where there dark patches in the sand? Any distinctive odors of rotton eggs?

I had a 5-6" DSB that I did not transer.

I"m thinking maybe part of the problem could be my macro algae. I had some cateo(sp) in a bucket for a few days while I set my fuge up. It smelled pretty bad when I added it to the fuge but it was still green and seemed ok. I just thought maybe it was the detrius on it that could have smelled. Since then I remove almost all but a handful or two.

I don't understand why eveythingelse is doing greaty. All my mushroom, soft corals, zoo's and the a few SPS corals seem to be opening and doing great..... it's just really frustrating to keep loosing things 4 weeks after the move

Did the upgrade involve new/different/stronger lighting? If there's any big change to the lighting, many corals need some acclimation.
Just a thought.

I added a 400w MH to the center but have not been running my lights for the full time to allow everything to acclimate. I pretty much kept al the coral under the 250's and planned on moving them slowly under the 400w mh. If anythign they are probably getting a little less light.

It sucks. When I did my tank switch I lost a small staghorn frag a day after. Wasn't happy about that at all. All my other SPS werent affected. I ditched the old sand bed only keeping about 1/2 cup of it to seed my new sand.

I expected to loose a couple things in the move....but I didn't expect to keep loosing things 4 weeks later

When will it end? I feel like I have the worst luck possible with this hobby

I'm with you jamal...I'm having problems and I didn't even move. If I didn't have bad luck I'd have none at all.

Hopefully it'll all turn around for the better tomorrow!
