THANK YOU!! With all of your help and advise I'm proud to tell you that my tank is normal again! I didn't loose any fish although everything is still a bit slimey. I added a medium to my filter to bring the nitrite levels down, which are now are 0.5, and with water changes and "blacking out" the tank for 2 days the algea has come under control with no chemicals. I'm still going to do one more water change, pull the plants out to clean then and also clean up some of the slime tomorrow but all is looking great! I can't thank you all enough. I also can't believe how stressful the past 3 days have been!!!!
what is the medium? A good filter medium is a cartridge of activated carbon and a sponge, any filter can have this, just buy some filter sponge at your lfs, cut it to fit in your filter, then make an insision at the top of the sponge wide and deep enough to fit the cartridge of carbon, then change the carbon monthly but dont change the sponge, just clean it when you are changing the tanks water by gently squeezing it in the bucket of old aquarium water
