So the tank got moved less than a year ago, you scrub the rocks on a schedule, & dose Nopox. Sounds like you should do a lights out for 3 days, stop dosing & cleaning the rocks & just go with it. let it settle on its own.

Thanks Vinny. I was planning to do that this weekend. Scrub rocks. Spray with peroxide. Perform water change. Lights out for 3 days. I haven't dosed NoPox in a month and I finally have some traceable nitrates.

Starting a fuge next week to hopefully get some stability that dosing NoPox couldn't provide.

I guess feeding sooo minimally would help. I feed just 1 cube to seven small fish each day and feel like they're starving sometimes. More clean up crew guys are inbound also.

Anyone know about assessor fish? Seems cool but I haven't seen much about them on the forum
