Oh, your poor little plants look so sad after the fertilizer mishap! I hope they pull through.

Fish love eating nematodes; I had a few of the little red ones in my substrate for a while and whenever I did water changes my goldfish would chase them down.

I don't see why that wouldn't work as long as you have proper lighting for them, and with no fish you may need to fertilize them; I've done something similar myself.

However, you often save money...

I agree. I think your problem here is actually too much cleaning. Hot water is going to kill your filter bacteria, which is going to throw your tank out of balance, which can result in algae.

Did you get an entirely new filter? Most of the beneficial bacteria live in the filter media, so if you didn't save any of the old media and transfer it over it's basically like starting with an...

You shouldn't ever see ammonia or nitrite in a cycled tank, which means that your tank isn't cycled yet. If you already have fish in there you should definitely keep doing water changes to keep the...

The water needs to be aerated to bring CO2 in, so that would be fresh tap water, or other water that you've run a bubbler in. However, it only brings in a big dose when you first add it, and then...

They should be fine. If it looks like they aren't happy could try wrangling them then. The only floaters I know of that really object to current is salvinia; it doesn't like getting its leaves wet.

The idea is to up the dose until the deficiencies go away, then slowly lower the dose to just above when they start to show them again. It's different for every tank.

Java ferns can actually tolerate salt quite well (I believe they grow in intertidal rivers and placed like that in the wild), so if you got a little salt in there they should be fine.

I find it funny that everyone would move the rock to the right; if anything, I would move it a little to the left and make it more of a grouping with that other rock.
Looks great though. :)
