I never touched the filter at all... it is an aquaclear 110, with the big sponge, a bag of carbon (although the carbon is probably dead by now, i just haven't taken it out because I figured meh, one more layer for bacteria to settle on), and a bag of the ceramic ring thingies on top. I never bothered keeping any of the old gravel to seed the new substrate because quite frankly, i just forgot. dumped it all on the back driveway, and as I watched it all hit the ground, thought "oh crap", i was going to keep some of that." The driftwood stayed in the tank the whole time, and the large rocks were taken out and set aside and put back in... the tops of the rocks dried out but the bottoms were still wet when I put them back in the tank (would that have saved some bacteria as well?).
I will wait until tomorrow (Sundays are half price on live fish for Petland members) and test my water one more time, and then if it's still good, I'll go pick up the yoyos (unless I get other replies here saying that I should wait).
