    What are your water tests showing? Salinity? Also post on the salt water forums maybe someone there could help. United reef has alot of experienced salt water fish keepers.

    All you can really do is check the basics ,

    ph swings or ammonia spikes & low 02 are the first 3 I'd check! They all lead to the stressed swimming surface gasping sorta behaviour. You can't really test 02 but slapping in increased aeration as a precautionary move is safe and will help if it's an ammonia issue as well .

    Did u include crushed oyster shell into the setup?
