quarantined the roselines and they all died in quarantine.

I'm running into another issue too. I'm getting algae on older growth and it's a sign of low CO2, so I cranked up the CO2. The loaches and pleco were not happy. Everybody else seemed fine. I found the pleco upside down, barely breathing (comatose)... I picked him up and threw him in the quarantine tank and he came around within a few minutes. The loaches stay hidden all day.

So, I'm going to raise my lights up a few inches, and lower the CO2. ANd also do some serious trimming to get rid of the algae. I guess it's not going to be as high-tech as I'd like it too. No more pearling plants.
