Darn, sorry for your loss :/ I've caught myself onc or twice ready to pour in a bucket without putting in the drops, but I'm lucky enough to remember in time. Hopefully your other fish are alright.

Everyone else is acting normal again so I'm pretty happy about that. It just sucked because I almost crashed a tank and my beneficial bacteria

So sorry to here about this. Hope everyone else makes it through.Lots of tanks. Some tanks are planted. Fish include community and bettas.
2 Dachshunds. Angel (Red) and Cookie (Chocolate Dapple).
Shiny Things and Beauty the rabbits.
RIP Princess and Max the Dachshunds, Tiger and Ping Pong the rabbits, and all the fishes from when I was a newbie.

It can be easy to make a mistake like that when distracted like you were
Keep a close eye on your parameters for a few days, just in case
It might also help to use something like seachem stability to help your surviver.If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

Oh no, Dylan! I'm sorry!

So far everyone is acting normal. I'm going to test the parameters tomorrow and monitor it for a few days. How many days do you suggest I watch it until it's back to "normal" Cliff? Thanks everyone!

I wouldn't be too hard on yourself; I bet you won't make that mistake again. Plus, there's plenty of fish in the sea, or lake, or whatever.

I know, ironically the reason why my first 29g setup that was given to me crashed was because of the same reason. I was doing a 50% waterchange and I forgot to dechlor the tank and when I got back from throwing my bullpen with a buddy of mine the entire tank was belly up. Luckily I caught myself in time on this one before the entire tank crashed.
I just checked my Angels and they seemed to be sitting in the back left corner, like they were before. They were just acting normal so I don't get what's going on. I hope I didn't wipe out too much bacteria, they should be fine by the morning. I really like the way the tank looks with 1 of it's 2 lights on, I'll try and get a picture tomorrow, it's eerie but I like it.
