That's a bummer it's probably just because your tanks kind of new hope you LFS let's you get a refund so can buy more I wouldn't worry too much check your ammonia levels.

Alright. Thanks. I sure hope so. I hope I didn't introduce a disease with my 1st fish. I will check my ammonia levels today. I'm unable to do a water change, as I'm pretty much snowed in.

Yeah that's what I did. I removed everything out of my 10g and put it in my 55 when it was done cycling

My only option on a water change is moving everything over from my 10 gallon and using that water to do a change. Levels in the nano are:
Ammonia: 0 ppm
Nitrite: 0 ppm
Nitrate: 10 ppm

Nooooo bad idea don't sweat the nitrite or nitrate yet because you do not have any corals yet. Best thing today is to just wait it out. Moving water and critters from your 10 gallon will only cause microscopic die off thereby raising all the nutrients involved in the nitrogen cycle I know it can be tempting to move fish over but trust me it's gonna be best just to wait it out. See if your Lfs (as soon as you can get there) has any microbacter7 by brightwell this should speed up the process and yes do some water changes as son as possible.
