Glad you found one. Water changes wouldn't hurt you either. But that's my best guess why your palys are like that if the rest of your tank hasn't changed suddenly.

Not sure, but can you put straight carbon into a media bag, or does it have to be reef carbon? I've had carbon that wasn't for aquarium use and some that couldn't be used in saltwater... :huh:
