Live and learn. I could write a series o books on the mistakes I've masd and the experiments gone awry. Just don't give up the ship. Keep on trying.......and learning.

hi
i'm glad you were able to get to the bottom of the
problem,and glad too that you are not giving up
this fantastic hobby. :)
Everyone has somewhere along the line made a mistake,
you're not the first,and you
really will not be the last.
enjoy re-stocking.
:)

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

I'm so sorry for your troubles. Lesson learned, and you've probably helped to prevent another tragedy with someone else.

The brown stuff might be diatom algae. Pretty common with new tanks. Eventually it will go away as the tank matures.

Happened to me too.

Last night I lost a breeding pair of Dempseys, this confirms my suspicion. Did you go to extra lengths to clean your tank after?
