    Sorry you lost all the guppies :( You may have transferred enough bacteria with fish. Is this tank planted?

    Your otos are all ok still, and gourami has a red mark on his face? Are you still doing salt baths?

    My ten gallon filter didn't have a bio-wheel or anything, just the filter cartridges which you have to replace. Also, the filter was only made for a ten gallon tank. I got on Amazon and bought a larger filter with both a bio-wheel and cartridge filter. The tank is planted with anubias nana. Most of the anubias nana plants are plants that I grew in my ten gallon tank, but I did go to the store and buy a new one.
    All the otos are sucking the driftwood and algae, and none of them are acting lethargic. However, one oto has had one blind eye since early spring. I recently noticed that the eye was popping out more than it should. I read that since otos are sensitive, salt baths are bad for them. I thought that since he had the eye for a while, and since the guppies were only dying recently, this wasn't connected.
    The gourami still has a red mark on his face. I stopped doing salt baths because while they made the swelling and redness decrease, they didn't make it go away completely. Should I start doing salt baths again and try to do them for a longer period of time?

    Actually a picture would help a lot here. Just a snap with your phone makes it easier to know what we're dealing with.

    Is the driftwood new or from the 10g?

    The eye, i'm not sure. I would think if it was infected, it would have caused another problem by now. How long has he had the swollen eye? Did he have it when you got him? I agree, not necessarily connected with the red mark.
    How's the water testing today?

    You could have removed the sponge from the cartridges and placed them in the new filter, this would have transferred BB to the new filter

    Using the liquid test kit, what are your current readings for ammonia, nitrIte, and nitrAte?
