Oh no Really feel for you mate, especially having watched everything coming together on here. I know you put a lot of time and effort into it. Hope everything goes well, and your tank (and fish) recover. Hopefully you won't be completely starting from scratch, severely reduced water flow is better than no flow at all so some bacteria may have survived, and the second colony (that convert nitrite into nitrate) will sometimes go dormant rather than dying completely. Don't blame yourself, mistakes happen. It's something that wouldn't have crossed my mind, I thought those pipes were pretty much impossible to kink. Good luck getting everything sorted
