Any ideas?most of the biomaterial was transferred to the new sump including new live rock.

If all you changed was the container you were using for the sump, the problem has to be within the new DIY sump. Did you change the flow rate through the bio material? Did you make the 30 gal
. tank yourself? If so, did you use the correct sealant? How long was the transfer time between sumps? maybe the new live rock has had some die off and contaminated the main tank a bit? Any of these may be the cause. Time to check the water parameters and possibly do a water change if none of the items I listed relate to your situation.
Hope this helps
