Thanks, I will pick one of thos plants up. So if it turns out it was the water condition that killed him, if I do a 100% water change weekly, and a 50% chance weekly with the plant in the tank, will that def be ok to maintain his health?

Personally I wouldn't bother getting your water tested at this stage due to a death in the tank-you may not get a true reading-also, some things that go on in our tanks we can't test for as a hobbyist....testing is good and recommended on a regular basis-often your fish will tell you when something is wrong too by their behavior......making regular water changes are the preventive but not 100%...nothing is 100% and sometimes no matter what you do the fish may die...some things are out of our control....we can only do our best by providing a stable environment and good nutrition.......

Plants aren't miracle workers. I would suggest two 100% water changes weekly.

One 50% water change once a week, even with a plant, just won't cut it.
