YAY Go Craig! Go Craig! Yeah!
The chemicals may have had an effect. Most probably when you introduced the Yoyo losches they brought in whitespot which knocked off your whole tank. As for the 5.2 I say stock it with neons/cardinals and corys possibly guppies or if you really want a betta. I say you crank out your old tank again

o maybe you could put in some guppys no tetras J-Man as for them to be happy they would have to be overstocked and it would be best as the keep the tank understocked for Craig. So i am thinking at the moment no corys no tetras. If you want a challenge Graig you can try neons or cardinals but if i am correct i belive they are sensitive to water quality. I would go with some harlequin rasboras and some ghost shrimp or one betta or guppies right now i think thats about it but the rasboras should do fine as you see i have 3 in a 2.5 gallon and they arent in great conditions i would like to move them but my mom wont let me but they are fine the tank doesnt smell or anything crystal clear and the gravel is really clean so heres what i suggest

tank plan 1
4 harlequin rasboras
3 ghost shrimp
tank plan 2
3-4 male or female guppys
3 ghost shrimp
tank plan 3
one male betta
3 ghost shrimp
1-2 male guppys

dont get a male and female guppys as they will mate though i am not sure on tank plan 2-3 better wait for some more advice and opinons

ya get the big tank out the key is to take it slow and easy get low light plants if you want live plants and get hardy fish so its hard for you to kill them and keep the tank understocked and overfiltered until your confindence gets back up

what happened that made you put the tank away

Craig,
Your chances of success are actually greater with the bigger tank than the little one. The bigger the tank, the more water you have to work with. I would just put a betta in the smaller tank. I'm glad you're starting over!

you might be able to put a rtbs in there depending your dimesnions of your tank but not that many other fish since its aggresive and its a small tank he would probably become territroyial
