I just read back through this thread...your stocking seems ok, but I agree that the Koran will outgrow that tank. Eels are messy eaters, but the CUC should enjoy the scraps. As much as I am a "bio balls aren't always nitrate factories" kinda guy, I almost wonder if that might be the problem. I've had two tanks with them and never had nitrate problems, but maybe I'm lucky. Also, do you have any dead spots with water flow? Those nitrates are coming from somewhere.

So I just went to check out my tank, there must be a hundred small brittle starfish on all of the rocks, Is that good? If my nitrates are that high wouldn't that effect them first?

Not necessarily. They are quite resilient.
