Re: Dead SAEs

A counter example may be appropriate here. 

Some time ago we had a "CO2 disastor" when a pH electrode went belly-up 
overnight causing the CO2 controller to think the pH was too high, causing the 
CO2 to be on all night, causing a CO2 level that was close to 140 ppm in the 

All the fish in the 120 gallon tank were in serious shape when we found them in 
the morning. We changed half the water (and the electrode) and hoped for the 
best. We lost 8 adult Rainbowfish out of 12 (Glossolepsis seemed less affected) 
but the adult SAEs, Farlowellas, Corys and Plecos all recovered with no obvious 
ill affects.
