Thanks everyone. Well, I broke the tank down yesterday and spent a few hours "cleaning". Now I know why smart people keep empty tanks (w/ no gravel or decorations) for qt!!!! I cleaned everything with bleach and gave the plants a couple of minutes in the bleach dip too. If they die, I'll just replace them. I didn't have too many plants anyway.

I was going to put the tank away, but then I changed my mind (as we women like to do) and I decided to set it up again. I had a bag of pool filter sand set aside that I never used, so I think I'll give it a try in this tank. So I'm off to the races with setting up ANOTHER tank (this time its only 20g). Plus I have a completely empty 10g that I can use as a qt should I ever need it again. No gravel or decorations next time either .

cleaning a tank sucks but very necessary after a major catastrophic event :P (big words make me smart). i have a like big storage tub with nothing but water a lid a hole cut so a strip light can get through and a powerhead filter. thats it, having a qt will save you sooo much headache and MONEYYYYYY. make sure you wash your sand though i put a tut up a few days ago. i suggest you take a look so you have a place to start ;)
