    Think I figured it out, bad test kit. I showed 80 ppm so I finally took in a sample to the lfs and they told me it was like 10. Bought a new nitrate tester. Guess I was chasing a ghost. Also added 4...

    The skimmer is working, it's not the black crud I've seen from other skimmers, more like a medium brown but maybe it's just because I don't have much stuff in there yet and I empty it every other...

    Another oddity, but the plant on the far left and far right used to be the same size. One grew like a weed, the other is browned out all the time. Using floramax bulbs.

    Nitrates down to 10, no traces of ammonia or nitrites. Tank is recovering great after the goldfish removal. Actually got all 5 of them in one shot. Seem to be doing well, hopefully no death this time.
