And the planting was not light all over... one end got a good bit of val... and it will be growing...
Maybe I should take some hornwort over there when I go today?

Seemed OK, we had no deaths overnight. Considering collecting stress and the absolutely no acclimation, I am pretty pleased.
Nah, if you added bacteria in a bottle (Seachem Stability claims that's what it is), you should be good.

What town is it in?

Um, that is absolutely not when ammonia kills fish. Ammonia does not kill the first night. Ammonia deaths usually start around one week after adding fish flakes for the first time.
Seemed OK, we had no deaths overnight.
Check out this graph: Day 14 is when the ammonia reached its maximum concentration in the uncycled tank.
But yeah, you added beneficial bacteria in a bottle. Assuming it wasn't past its expiration date (and assuming Seachem Stability works as well as API Quick Start; I have yet to see an experiment posted by the company like API did as I showed with the graph above), you should be good.

In general, ammonia deaths happen at the one week time point. That's not condescending, it's just a fact. Assuming they are not going to have problems because they survive the first night is not true. You know me Skipjack, so you must know I am at my most annoying when correcting an assumption that could lead to death. It's worth being perceived as annoying or bossy or condescending, etc names if the fish lives. As Michael said there was bacteria in a bottle used, so there is no further reason for me to comment here. That is a very nice setup, Michael.

Thanks, EL, I was more concerned about the collecting stress (we had too many fish in the cooler for my tastes) and related systemic failure... but I was certainly glad to see wild caught fish eat on the first or second day.
That is a very nice setup, Michael.

FYI, we are still supporting this tank... the plants have not done as well as I would like... but we have bluehead chubs and stonerollers and blackbanded darters growing large and fat... and we put some of the N. longirostris in there and they too are doing very well. And we are still getting publicity for the Nature Preserve and for NANFA! Click the link below.

I hope to have God on my side, but I must have Kentucky.
