Thanks for you sympathies guys.

And thanks for the link Scott. I'll check it out later tonight.

In all the fury, I think I missed the fact that a feeding from a new (but
very not fresh) can of FD Plankton was most likely involved (botulism for

(Number 1 Rule of Aquaria and broken horribly by one Farmertodd last week:

I'm down to 3 M. praecox (no mortalities???) and a Pearl Gourami in this
system. The other fish look better and feed better, now that I gave them
some decent meals. We'll have to see if my hypothesis holds up. Then I'll
begin backtracking...
