Yup, dont want pulses of the big E in your tank.
How would I ground the tank?
All my equipment is grounded. The submersible pumps are both grounded.
Your Nitrates are zero. WOW I would check that again. I've never had nitrate at 0 maybe 10 or 15 but never 0.
They are always 0. I've tried it with several test kits, they are always 0.
Nitrites also stay at zero.
I use Nitrate sponges in my sump, I'm sure they help.

This is what amcarrig meant about your tank being grounded.
Yes, electricity wise I'm thinking stray voltage. Do you have a ground probe in the tank?
No I don't. I didn't know they even had those. Only problem is I wouldn't know what to hook it up to. Would anything metal outside the tank work? That's what works for computers.
You don't have to hook a ground probe up to anything. You just put the probe into the tank and plug the other end into an outlet.
I'll order one right away.
I just hope I can find and outlet, I've already filled up two power strips.
Thanks for the help.
I did try feeding the sifting star, he didn't take the food. I ended up lifting him and putting the food under him. Then the cleaner shinp came down and took the krill from him.
Asilefx, Ive been having a similar problem with my chocolate chip seastar. In my case, the damage is either due to an infection, or a response to a sudden change in salinity or probably both.
She's had the damage to her legs for 4 weeks now, but is still hanging in there, eating and moving as per normal.
