Today I put the eco-complete in. Both plants, filter, heater, and decorations are back in the tank. Once it gets a little less cloudy I'll be reintroducing the fish and snails. Now for some pics.
Putting it all back into order.
I forgot to get a pic with just the e/c in there. This has a little tank water and both plants.
I filled it up a little too much
Half old tank water
. Again to try to keep my cycled gravel stable I filled the tank halfway with old tank water.
Filled all the way.
You can see how murky the water is.
Waiting for it to clear.
I put the filter and heater back in to run while I waited for the murkiness to die down a little.
I tested the water before trying to put the fish back in. All readings within normal limits.
I'm putting the decorations back in until I can get home to collect and treat some driftwood. My parents live on a lake so I have a good supply
. Blue Jeans and Fish waiting to be released. It was a long weekend for them.
Checking things out.
I will probably take the ugly rock bags out by the end of the week so I will put up finished pics then. I am going to a GBBA meeting in march and I will be getting more plants then. Once I get those planted I will put up more pics on this thread.
A few extras:

My new (used) 4 gallon tank. This is Ember's new home. Ember is one of Vikkis fish and I can't wait to get him home :D The hood is glued on with no getting it off unfortunately.. but I can get in/ out through the clear part where I assume the light went.
