Re: Aquatic Plants Digest V3 #20

In the mixture everyone seems to like there is 2 cups sugar, 1 tsp yeast, 1
tsp baking soda, and the rest water.  

Q-  What is the purpose of using warm water to begin with?
Q-  What is the purpose of the baking soda?  I did read some where that it
      the mixture and makes it last longer. 
Q-  What yeast are you supposed to use?  I tried this for about a week and
lost 2 
      Discus and 20 neons.  I was wondering if i used some different kind of
yeast.  It
      seemed to be the only variable that could change from user to user since
      and water are all the same. 
History-  45 gal tall tank, RO water with partial tap water for the elements,
80 ppm
             hardness,  PH 6.5 and steady, 85 degreee temp.  For any of you
who want 
             to take a stab at why the fish died.

Thank you,
