Yes, after 10 posts you will not have to wait for a mod to approve your posts. Also, if your post only contains text (no links or images) then it doesn't need mod approval. Just a FYI.

Good job returning the shark. How is the goldie with the eye injury doing?
In terms of the ammonia...it might take a couple days for the bacterial colony to recover to stabilize your nitrites and nitrates. Stay diligent on watching for signs of ammonia or nitrite poisoning for the guys still in your tank.

As was mentioned you have alot of messy/poopy fish. You will have to keep the bioload low. I would feed them every two days, and only what they need, until your tank is stable again. Otherwise, more poop=more ammonia.

My My My

Update -
My Ammonia is now sat at 0 and all other stats are bang on.
My Tiger loach is now becoming a pain in the Eye for the ill fantail
My Plec is now very active and seems to be chasing the larger fish in an attempt to latch onto them, is this a bad thing? the larger fish seem far from impressed by it.

Main Question, how much and how often should i look at a water change, i did a full tank clean a week last Saturday and i cleaned all the gravel etc, i have not yet done a water cycle.
