Angry need help!

Hey guys. I am so frustrated, everything about this 10 gal sorority has gone wrong, and now my three-year old just put a paper plate and a spoon in the water.....does this mean I should re-start the cycling? Help, i don't know what to do.

There was no food on either, but the plate did fall apart and was stuck to my filter.

There are no fish in it yet, as I was still cycling preparing for my sorority.

I don't imagine there was anything on the paper plate or spoon that would be harmful to fish, I would just clean the debris out as best I could and continue with the cycle, if it's going to be a while before you add fish anyway anything that was left should be cleaned out by then.. BUT.. I would look into putting the tank somewhere that your 4 year old can't repeat the behaviour...

Oh no, he just did it before I had a chance to get a new hood. That was one of the many accidents to happen, I BROKE the first lid. I bought a new full hood that he cannot get into now.

Do not be so hard on yourself, from she who blames herself for everything first before thinking it through.
I bought a brand-new filter Saturday and in the process of tank-cleaning, accidentally propped the hood on the top of the brand-new, very quiet filter. Sigh, yes with the lights on. Result? The dust cover for my brand-new filter has melty spots on it. Bah.
Better days are coming when both our 10g tanks are mature & we have pretty pictures to show everyone. ;)
