Agreed, diatoms ... Your nitrates while not perfect are tolerable. Probably a consequence of your feeding pattern (which you are taking care of) and your water. Check and make sure the water is RO water. If you are someone you know (lfs?) has a TDS, check the TDS on the water. It should be zero or near zero. Otherwise it's probably mainly the overfeeding.

You did treat the tank with copper right? What was the product name?

There's the confusion. The thread was started by tntfish but somewhere along the line you hijacked it. And I lost track of the players...

Anyway . good luck
