Well, that would explain the issue! Stupid tap water...

R/O water is good, but it is completely devoid of minerals, so you must add them back to the water or it will be very acidic and have no buffering ability, which means small things can cause huge ph swings. Also, the fish need those minerals to be healthy :D
