Effects of sudden co2 loss

I'm trying to deduce the cause of some recent imbalances in my planted
discus tank.  How does an abrupt loss of co2 effect aquaria?  Recently i
completely ran out of gas for about two days in a 180 gallon heavily
planted discus tank which was being fed about 5 bubbles/second.  My
previously thriving Microsorium deveoped big dark brown/purple patches on
many but not all leaves.   Was also wondering if UV would help control
algea (brush, and fetid slimy stuff occasionally) and what other effects UV
