Am definitely going to do the reverse flow powerheads, excellent suggestion!
Guess this one falls under the heading of "I knew better but I did/didn't do it anyway." Dumb, dumb, dumb. I've read a hundred times NOT to break down the whole tank at one time to clean it and I did it anyway. Probably not as bad as "my laziness killed 2 of my fish." Now if you could tell me WHY people do dumb things when they KNOW better *sigh* ...
Thank you for all your help and advice. Now if I just can get rid of that sick feeling in the pit of my stomach that tells me I've REALLY screwed up ...
Making perhaps dumb mistakes is a human quality shared by many , myself included. Much of what I've learned in this hobby and in life, has been the hard way. Pleases me If I can help someone avoid problems with respect to keeping our wet pets.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.
