what params did you test? Could you post the results?

Any chemicals used around the tank? Cleaners? How bout the stuff you use for the tank like buckets? Any metals around the tank?

Anything in an aerosol could easily get into the tank.

Do a big water change and add carbon.

You don't really need to clean the rock and sand.

If that doesn't work then there is something bigger going on.

I would do some big water changes, add some carbon and let it sit for a few days. Then I'd try adding a xenia or something and seeing how he does. If it does fine after a few days then you're probably safe.
