Soak the rocks in prime for a few days and sometimes it will help with that.

That's awful!! I've got my pH down a little and my remaining 3 Rummies have color back in their faces. I hope your tank is ok now.

Yeah, .25 shouldn't be what killed them. Just make sure that doesn't jump up any higher. And I thought fish keeping would be easy. HA!!
