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.><((((º> ><((((º> ><((((º> ><((((º>

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)

Either your description of the temp is WAY off or something else is going.

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...
