    Quick update, switched out the soil for eco complete but in the process of adding fish back to the tank lost 4 blood fins :(. I had the new water a few degrees to hot and the shock got them. Going to let the tank stabilize for a few days and get more fish Friday or Saturday.

    Use a thermometer to check the temp before adding the water to the tank. Then you will not have casualties like that. If you are using a Python or other water changer like it, hold the themometer under the water coming out of the tap until you get it to the temp you want then close the valve and start to fill after adding dechlorinator or course.

    A few degree's rarely will kill fish if the water is being added to a tank- was the pH close enough?
    Knowledge is fun(damental)

    A 75 gal with eight Discus, fake plants, and a lot of wood also with sand substrate. Clean up crew is down to just two Sterba's Corys. Filters: continuous new water flow; canister w/UV, in-tank algae scrubber!! Finally, junked the nitrate removal unit from hell.

    For Fishless cycling:

    +1 agreed

    Either your description of the temp is WAY off or something else is going.
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    The water was to cold and I WAY over corrected by the time I got back with the next bucket they were dead. Learn from mistakes and move on I guess >.<. Just feel F*^#$%@ stupid for making the mistake...
