This is Day Zero of recovery.
I think I'm burning my plants. I lost my AI's controller during the move and just keep forgetting to turn the lights on and off. They are probably getting too much light by leaps and bounds.
There was some algae taking hold on the tops of some leaves. Scrubbed that off with my thumb while I was cleaning and trimming some (a lot) of dead leaves. Hopefully its nothing that will over run my tank.
I've started a maintenance routine, finally with ferts, and hopefully the tank will improve weekly.
Note to self: take pictures BEFORE water changes, not after.

New UV bulb
The "more plants" part of my shopping list has, and always will be, neglected I fear. I keep buying equipment and stuff, and never anything to use it on lol
Anyways, heres what the tank looked like after today's change. I've lost about 2/3rds of my plant mass to degradation.
Here we see my three loaches being scared in the corner. Two clowns and a Striata. You can also see my green panque pleco:
A rosy barb hiding in the very back of the tank:

Some kind of crypt:
