Re:High Temperature = Dead Shrimp?

    How I wish I had read this yesterday. :( 25 dead japonicas this morning, 
I look at the new plants I popped in there yeaterday, sure enough uncoated 
lead wieghts. Think thats the culprit? The flag fish were stressing hard this 
AM when I woke up, moved them to a quarantine tank, they all seem better now. 
The water is as follows:
Ammonia: 0
Nitrite: 0
GH: 11
KH: 17
Ca2+: 60mg/l
Fe:< 0.1 mg/l
Chelated Fe: 0.50 Mg/l
    Any suggestions? Plants are bubbling like crazy and all seemed well last 
night before the lights went out. Thanks in advance for any help.

 perhaps? Especially if Co2 is being utilized. That's the usual source.
 Perhaps the poster can tell us more.
