So had a rough time this weekend. I did the swap over friday afternoon. Took alot longer then I originally planned due to having issues with my youngsters midway thru. Then I wasnt able to watch it this weekend since I was gone and looks like my fish got way stressed out. Lost both mollys, both green corys, one of the false jullies. The MIL took one fish out Saturday but didnt notice the others so they were in there probably all day sunday.
The betta is doing fine (as usual), the 6 neons also did fine which I thought those would be the first to go but they are doing fine. The last 3 false jullies are also doing ok for now. Had to move the narite snails to the betta/shrimp house because the nitrates spiked up. Went and did a 50% water change. Will do another today after work.
Water parameters were Ammonia-0, nitrites-0, nitrates-80, PH-7.4, KH-4, GH-3 (atleast according to my API test kits). The GH is more at 2.5, didnt get the full color change over till the 3rd drop but it kind of started to change on the 2nd.
Anyhow hoping I can get it back to normal. WOrd of advice be careful and as quick as possible when changing substrate on a established tank. Or better yet have another aquarium to house the little guys in until your finished.
The swap over on the 10g (betta and shrimps) had no losses however that went much much quicker.
