just becasue its not on the fhis does not mean it all gone. It is now in the tank, in the sb on the lr. You really need to cycle the tank properly, having fish in a uncycled tank just causes stress as you now know.

Sorry to hear about your mis-guidence. The very first thing to do is to find a new LFS. It is abvious they are only interested in taking your money, not educating you. It is time to start over and chalk this up to lessons learned. Take the fish back to the LFS, if they are the ones that sold you them knowing the age of your tank they should own some of the responsibility. Pick up a copy of "The Conscientious Marine Aquarist" by Robert Fenner it is a great resource. Time to start from scratch. remember...nothing happens fast in this hobby.

Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
