needing some more info here...

How much live rock do you have in the tank, and is it still healthy? (lots of stuff growing on it, moving about, etc)
"since your last fish"...so, there are no fish in there now?

Did you have an ammonia spike, and the resulting fallout?

check all of your water parameters...even silica.

I keep a basic test kit ammonia, nitrate, nitrite, pH, and alk. I'll get a better test kit. actualy there is alot of pritty micro algea and I think I've found a worm or something on my live rock. The ammonia spiked a little. I have nothing in the tank exept sand, 20 lbs. of live rock, and a few decorations.
