      Unhappy quick breakdown

      past two weeks i noticed some corals were declining & i wasnít able to find out exactly why,
      lost two fish and a cleaner shrimp and still i couldnít figure out why
      parameters were all good, no changes in lighting or anything else
      nothing infected or had pests so i was really confused. especially since the remaining fish/shrimp were acting weird
      put my hand in the water to move a rock and got zapped. endured that a bit more by unplugging things and testing again until i got to the return pump, only zapped me when it was plugged in, couldnít find any signs of anything broken, loose connections or anything really. got a temporary pump from a local and ordered a new pump
      it was a pretty cheap amazon pump that was less than 6 months old

      lesson learned, sucks but iím glad i found the cause before anything else happened

      What brand was the return pump that shocked your tank??
      What did it feel like when you had your hand in the tank? Was it a very serious shock or a slight tingle?? I think I may be having the same issue. My fire shrimp just died but he is 2+ years old and they donít live long. My cleaner shrimp seems to be good as ever.
