You said it died in 2 hours not 5 days. As for the other one that died, how fast did you raise the ph? Rapid raising or lowering of the ph is not good, you must do it slowly. I beleive its recomended to only raise it .02 per day until you reach the desired level.

.3 is a lot to raise the PH in two days. The other poster was right, .02 per two days is the rule of thumb with PH buffers. The swings could cause issues.
