Sounds like your pump on your skimmer has an insulation issue need a new pump. Or you can add a grounding prob into the tank it is a simple stainless steal peice conected to a wire that plugs into the ground socket of the wall outlet. But the grounding probe only covers up the problem of having a pump with poor insalation on your skimmer. if it is new I would contact the supplier and let them know. Also the stray voltage in your tank will cause issues with your fish infact I had a yellow tang that developed a red streak down is side a LFS steared me to the stray voltage issue. Found a bad heater and added a grounding probe. Good luck
