I'd keep doing those water changes -- possibly something in the newspaper (even
if only the ink) killed your biofilter.
As an aside, I think this is a good example of why quarantining EVERYTHING is
useful -- though I think I went too far when I quarantined gravel for 5 weeks
to see if it dropsied (it didn't)....
If you have any of the newspaper left and a friendly scientist nearby, you
could test the paper and see if it was anything on there.
Sorry to hear that this happened to you.
