    I should point out my tank is also by the heater vent in the wall so that helps a lot. and how often do we get to -8 without windchill rofl not that often so I think for now I am plenty fine. I will get an inline next year when I can afford it
    If I were you, I would get a 2nd 300w heater. A 4 deg drop overnight would be stressful to any future fish. You don't want your tank temp going up and down, it needs to be stable.

    I contacted a local breeder buddy of mine and he has 3 to 4 Super Red BN Plecos on hold for me and he says if I don't get a female when they grow out he has no prob swapping with me since he sells them right and left

    Hmmm...not sure why trAtes are dropping, they should have stayed high...are you checking your ammonia everyday, and dosing back up to 1/2 the ppm you started with when ammonia shows 0?

    yup but like i said someone told me never let ammonia go to 0 you starve your trates. I wonder if some of them just got starved? I haven't added anything to the tank and the only thing that changed was when i turned the lights off for bed last night I accidentally moved the filter plug some and this am it was not running so plugged it in more but that shouldn't have done much it was only off for abt 4 hrs

    Yikes pretty cold up there eh?

    Could it be from the addition of water? Possibly diluting. I know seems unlikely though. Did you thoroughly shake everything you're supposed to shake? It's super important for the nitrate test.
