Sure I'll bite at this....

The fish death was in my high tech tank that runs compressed CO2 and has lots or driftwood in it. The pH in that tank is around 7.2-7.5 and the fish death was due to columnaris which has now been cured. The illness came in on some rescued fish that I felt I didn't need to quarintine (lesson learned). After running a UV sterilizer for over a month and dosing meds we are looking health again.

My neons on the other hand are in a low tech tank where the pH is pretty much the same as local tap water. Our water in the palouse is extremely hard and very high pH. one of my LFS uses an RO system and the other does not. Regardless of where I got my fish I acclimate them properly and they thrive.
