What are your water parameters? The type of water that you used to start the system would help, if all & only RODI water was used or did you use cycled water & from what or where? In my experience, it could be the carbon pulling too many nutrients off the water colum & starving the entire system, but more info is needed.

Test for ammonia...is there a smell with the water? Try not to add anything in the tank..... testing would probably be your safest approach at this time. (2 pennies)
