Hi Roy,
I don't think it was excess CO 2 because that was kept constant all the
time. PH was at 6.8 but did not measure PH and KH. I think it was a
bacteria bloom from the dead suckers decomposing and a slight over feeding
2 days before. When I saw them gulping, I off the CO 2 and added aeration.

No, they were covered white and still alive with clamped fins and inactive.
