I used Prime to condition the water. I did change the filter to a stronger one (Fluval C2), but I will still do a water change soon, especially with all that failed food that I know has gone into the tank.
I tried a new thing this morning. I moved the filter on the side of the tank, rearranged that big glut of plants and put a couple of different types of food directly into the water flow as the water exited the filter. The pieces went with the current past the main place the fish hide in the big driftwood replica that is on the opposite end of the tank. Some of the danios got excited and grabbed a bit of the pieces of food as they flowed past.
I am just hoping the catfish will do the same. I don't mind being stupid about plants and trying a bunch of pretty plants and throwing them out when they die, but that isn't my same attitude about fish.
Also, I changed out my heater because the Eheim I had just wasn't getting the water warm enough, probably because of the weird shape of the tank, i.e., really long and skinny.
