What a Rookie Mistake

I just bought $35 worth of fish this afternoon for my new tank that has been cycling. I didn't think to turn down the co2 because I had it cranked to give the plants a head start. I lost about 75% of the fish. I feel pretty stupid right now.

I almost pulled that same mistake about 3 weeks ago when my wife stuck all her baby guppies in my nano tank... I had the co2 up like crazy. About 5 minutes later the guppies were all floating at the top gasping for air lol. Luckily I caught it and cranked the co2 down and stuck the air pump in there... managed to not lose any. It sucks, but live and learn!
