Whatever it was that killed a couple of plants a few months ago couldn't
have been tail rot, even if the leaves died back or turned to mush in a way
that looked like tail rot in a fish, which has a totally different cause.
Various things can cause plants to die back.  I'm sure that the clearing of
the water was not caused by the ogranism that causes tail rot in fish.
