No idea, other than water changes. Surely someone will know. Good luck anyhow.

The ammonia was high? That could have caused the deaths, for sure. Boil your driftwood well before putting it back in the tank. Had it been treated with pesticides (why would any one do that) it could have caused it. Just ideas I'm tossing out there...

Of course you'd never do that with your other tank. Not with the fish you have in it. $$$$
How high was your ammonia??
