Well I have more of an update I guess. We moved the tank 65 miles this Sunday to our new house. Since we drained the tank we figured now was the best time as any to change the gravel color and decorations. We went with more natural tan gravel and wood style decorations. We also got two live plants to put in there. I got another bottle of water clarifier and I also got the small bottle of Tetra smart start.
We moved the tank on Sunday and I had everything setup and put the fish back in the tank. Where I screwed up though is I thought I turned the water heater in the direction to turn it off. The fish were doing fine till we went to bed. Woke up in the morning and the water was hot, we pretty much cooked 4 of the fish. The ones that didn't make it were the fancy tail guppies and the neon orange tetras.
I wish I would have bought one of the nicer water heaters when I got the stuff for the tank initially and I wish I would have taken more time to make sure I had the heater turned the right direction. We now have 4 fish left: one mollie, red tail shark, pleco, and I think it is a yellow tetra with light highlights at the tip of it's fins.
I tested the ammonia and nitrite last night and the ammonia was between 0 and .25 but closer to 0. There were no nitrites. I tested Nitrate this morning and it is showing 1.0 on the scale. I guess this means our tank is cycled now? I can't believe that after 5 weeks of not cycling and then we move and it cycles in less then 2 days?
