Gabriel Died :(

I woke up this morning to find my little gabe dead. I have no idea what could have possibly caused this. He was acting a bit odd yesterday when I came home from school - spending most of his time resting in the roots of his plants and acting all shy but he still ate so I didnt think anything of it. My last water change was 5 days ago and the cories are still doing fine

RIP

Him at his best:

Im sorry Alex. He was a amazing fish. Was he gasping for breath at all? Were the cories acting odd as well? Maybe the co2 had something to do with it. If too much comes out it leaves the fish gasping. Did you turn it up a bit latley?

5 gallon,natural planted tank with 1 betta.
20 gallon community tank.
6 gallon guppy fry tank.

No... Been using the same recepie for a few weeks now. I renewed it last week I think. I made it so it does not produce much. besides, arent bettas supposed to be able to live in oxygen depleted environments? Cories have been acting all normal as well no gasping at the surface or anything.

Well I was just making sure as that can normally be the problem. If you check out the planted tank a lot of the people have been experncing deaths some one lost 30! yes 30 danios in one due to co2. Someone else lost 3 discus and there worth like 200 dollars each.

Yeah, I use a bit less yeast than what the normal formula uses since My tank's lighting is a bit on the lower side.
