    Just rereading my first posts from a few years back. Thought I'd give an update if anyone is interested.

    Thanks for your answer Scottishfish. It's not new plantlets -- I used to have lots of those so that's a familiar look (not for a couple years though -- dunno why).

    The tank is about a year old and was going fine until I added what in retrospect was probably too many new fish. So I think I got an ammonia spike that started the deaths. But now I'm wondering if...
