That's what I figured too! The only reason I could think of was to give the plants a chance to root or something. I am hesitant to clean the tank though because I came home from work to find I finally have crystal clear water! It will be cleaned tomorrow, I have very bad lighting in the part of my house where the tank is and have been busy with my new rescue today :X
The tank was purchased by my mom at a LFS like 10 years ago, or more. They don't make this tank anymore, it's an Oceanic. Too bad, because it is an awesome tank! I feel like I have one of a kind now though, which is pretty awesome, haha.
