Default Battery Discharge Scare 0 volts

Hi guys. I was doing my first discharge on my 2000 insight and I did something pretty dumb. I was on my 3rd cycle and decided to try a 300w bulb to speed up the discharge. The bulb started to get bright and the volts on the multimeter went from 155 to 0. I thought I blew the 100 amp fuse by the battery. I replaced it and the volts still read 0. Is there another fuse I blew or did I really screw up something major? Thanks

Was this your third cycle with charging in between, or just discharge, wait, discharge, wait, discharge?

I did a full 24 hr charge/balance between each discharge. I used a 200w bulb and stepped down to 100w then 25w the previous 2 cycles. I followed the instructions from hybrid auto and went to 0.8 then 0.5 volts. I got impatient and made a bad call.

I think I have it figured out. It turns out there's a fuse in the harness. I just had it wrapped in electrical tape.
