Sooo, here's the outcome idk what exactly it is as in "specific" but I do know for a fact that it was the flasks. I've done a little experiment.. And I have filled a large bowl with RO
water and tested it with my tds
gauge.. It was a solid 000 reading.. Then after I rinsed off and completely dried the flasks, I put them in the bowl.. Over the course of a few hours the tds
reading was at about 20, now 5-6 hours later.. The tds
is around 135... So I know for a fact the flasks are leaching something.. Just not sure what.. Nor do I care.. I'm just happy I narrowed it down and removed them.. I do know it was a hard metal of some sort. I turned off the skimmer and I dosed with kordon rid-metals and within 20 minutes, my zoas started to poke out.. And now they are all fully open and stretching for light!
my coco worm is ALOT more active also.. So after a few hours, I turned back on the skimmer and it went nuts with bubbles.. Overflowed and all.. So I turned it off.. Should I wait a few days to skimm again?? Thanks for all of your help on here!
