Do you have a 'keel' weight attached to your tank (assuming it's an aluminum 80)? If not, you may be pitching forward slightly. I noticed that this weekend when I was doing pool work for my DM class. I normally use a 6lb keel weight, but I took it off because I didn't need the extra weight for the pool. I felt really low in the water, something I don't experience in the open water.

Hope that helps.
