What are the parameters at? Was there any chance the lights were on for too long?

I checked nitrates 10, nitrites .25 and .5 ammonia. I just moved the tank about 10 days ago so maybe I'm having a mini cycle

If you have disturbed the substrate when moving then yes you will expect your parameter to go bad. If you removed the sand and putt it back then you will even expect the worse cause those ammonia will take awhile to subside even with water changes. The snail was probably the 1st casualty.

I didnt mess with the sand at all. I only moved a mile down the road so I drained the water moved the tank to the car then filled it back up with water. I used an ac/dc converter to keep the circulation pumps and heater working the whole time. Then did the the same thing to get it in the house.

This is what moved your sand and caused your parameter spike. Pretty common when you move a tank.

Now that you got most of your water chemistry back in line it might some back but your phosphate level is still to high

My frogspawn didn't make it :-(. My ammonia nitrate nitrite and phosphate have been zero for 2 days. My wife had to go to a doctors appointment in Bismark and brought back an acan as a surprise. I would return it but 150 miles is a long way to return something she spent 20 bucks for. He's eating so I'm thinking he's okay.
