Another problem began to prop up -- a couple of days ago, I had some issues with hydrogen sulfide -- I sifted through my sand and found nothing, but there was a distinct rotten egg smell (probably due to the snail dying off)
I water changed immediately about 35% and then the day after about 40%, then I went to the store and bought an air wand and then threw my 100 gallon airpump and put it back on duty yesterday. Everything was great, this morning though I woke up to some cloudy water.
I'm not sure now what's exactly happening, but this is nuts -- I thought the tank had already cycled, but now it's like I've started over heh.
I got the ph checked today and it's still sitting at 6.0 -- so I think I might get some limestone and see if that'll help change the Ph in the water a bit. I'm most likely going to get rid of the ceramic decorations. I just want to raise the PH to at least 6.5
Here's a couple of images today, and in my last thread it showed the tank without the aeration and it was clear as day. The picture shows that the cloudiness is kinda green, but it's white and milky.
