JG, yeah, I thought that might be the case - SG changes as gravity goes up too, (I think), so the temperature shift could have made the cycling chemistry more potent.

48 hours later and the others are still fine.

My ammonia is only at 0.5 - 1.0 (verified by LFS). Shouldn't have been the cause of death for the little guy. The death we had was a damsel with a big chunk out of a fin, it had been stressing for days.

The worrysome part was when the other fish started stressing. As soon as the temp came back under 81 or so they snapped out of it.

If you knew why did you ask? You`ve got alot of good responses here and I think that it has alot to do with all of the suggestions. A combo of Temp,ammonia, PH and poor choice of cycling method are all to blame. But of course that is IMO

I've asked questions when I thought I might already know the answers. Validation and comfirmation are good things when learning new things and trying to problem solve.

You do know JG that my comment was not at you. Hope you did not take it as I was talking to you. The only reason I said something was because all of the post which had pretty good info did not validate anything the original post asked.

Suspecting isn't the same as knowing.

I *thought* the spike in temperature was the problem, it wasn't until later, and after reading other posts, that I remembered water chemistry changes with higher temp. So yeah, the other posts did validate my later assumptions.

I'm not sure why that was neccessary.

No offense taken on my part as I knew the comment wasn't directed at me. However I did view the comment I quoted as sharp and did not want Scoot to be discouraged from seeking information. Sometimes the big picture doesn't come together until all of the pieces are in front of us. Then we have the "AHA" moment.

Have a great day!
