So I guess no one loves me
since I haven't gotten any replies here but I'll do another self-satisfying update anyway.
The browning on the leaves has faded and it appears that any leaves on the HC that died are kind of breaking off and the rest of it is coming back healthy. The DHG that I got grown submerged and then tried to convert to emersed for my DSM is coming back with a few bright green blades growing out. I received the rest of my Seachem products and will be starting a EI schedule tomorrow...I did a big WC today.
Ammonia is steady at 2.5ish ppm with nitrites at 0 and nitrates around 20-40 ppm which is good per the little book that came with the test kit.
I also picked up some RCS who are all looking good. When I first got them into the tank they were grey and tweaking out. They have settled in and their color has come back. It looks like one of them molted its skin and no victims yet.
My CO2 diffuser came today so I'll probably be setting up a DIY tank today or tomorrow. I also put in the heater that I originally bought since the shrimp will do better with it.
I was also looking at the zoomed 501 since the cheapo HOB that came with the tank has developed an annoying rattle and the tank is in my bedroom.
