    could be a result of high nitrates..
    100% sure your water is perfect?

    No2 should be 0

    In a very diplomatic way, I'd like to tell you what someone (a guru) told me once: "Sometimes they just don't survive the trip"
    If everything seems fine and it just seems to get worse, it would be an exception if you get it healed. Sorry Randywizard, I don't want to be negative.
