I have had oil film on my tanks and nothing was dieing. It is normal in a planted tank IME.
If the rhizomes are rotting then they are dead. You might want to let them float for a day or two BEFORE planting next time to avoid that.
I did not say you were - all the time,but sometimes you come ACROSS that way. I am guilty of that too sometimes (rarely)...So who am I to talk:icon_roll

That oily surface is on top of the water? Its like a milky substance? Thats protein from what I understand.
