    An 80% water change resulted in this :-s :

    Common algae
    Diamtons
    Cynobacteria
    excelled plants growth and as well as coverage of older leaves by diamtoms

    I'm guessing my filter and/or nutrients hit a brick wall and changed dramatically (I'm not surprised) and have had a negative effect, I'm guessing my tank is re-cycling.

    also worth noting ... a poor fishy died too :( one of my 50 rummy nose tetras. Everyone else in the tank looks happy, and the clown loach aren't displaying any distress spots which is good I guess, then I'd have another huge issue. *Sigh* issue after issue ey?

    I'm a problem person with a problem aquarium :celebrate:

    your tank should still be cycled. the water is not what is cycled, it is the substrate and filter media containing the large population of bacteria. Losing a single fish can sometimes happen and may not be related to anything.

    I think the water change and these occurances are merely coincidence.
