I knew I'd missed some information on my first post...Rex, I have tested KH at 1 and GH at 4. According to the formula I've read, I should have about 30ppm CO2, is that correct? I'm also dosing EI method with 50% - 60% water changes each week.

Haven't tested the nitrate kit, so you're right, I'm sure there's inaccuracy there. Either way, I suppose I should assume that nitrates are a little low, especially with the lowered bioload caused by all of my recent fish deaths.

WfxXx, should the extra O2 only be used at night or should some be added during the day as well, or will that only decrease my CO2 concentration...
