My disaster tank also started with SAEs dying without me knowing. My tank
was 6 month old with lush growth. Now that I recall, this might have been
the cause. 

I removed huge amounts of Echinodorus Tenellus which covered about 40% of
my substrate AT ONE GO! They were growing too fast and I decided to find
another foreground plant. Two days after and my SAEs were dead!

Did my action caused some serious upset to my tank's condition? I did not
change any other factors eg CO2 rate and lighting. Bitter, bitter lesson.
