hey, you might want to run a polypad to try and soak up the remaining metals in the water. or do a 100% water change, good thing your tanks are not huge.

Seachem makes two products that will help first is a rechargable one that is called purigen think it is one bag per 100-150g of water works like 300% better than carbon. The other item you can try is Cuprisorb it is for copper and heavy metals I think it can be recharged also but not for sure on that. They are pretty inexpensive but work awsome. I use the purigen now instead of carbon. It also clarifies your water and makes it look sooo much better. The pump when you say sen is that the full name? because I am about to order a pump and I want to make sure I stay away from that brand for sure...

That sucks! Honestly Ronen i don't think that wiped out your zoo collection. Down inside i hope it did because you found the problem.
