It sounds like your biobugs have been killed off, and the tank is going through 
cycling again.  Normal causes for biobug death are medication use, I've never 
heard of CO2 causing this.  I've just shot off a question to the puregold 
mailing list about that -- I'll let you know in a bit.

Looks like you'll get to go through cycling again.  I presume you know what 
this means -- many water changes, constant watching of the tank levels.  Not 
easy to do when you hve a job and life, I'm afraid.
