is it bubbling? it might be ph flux now that you've mentioned that. <<< I previously posted that.
no selective reading!! =P

anyway, yes if it bubbles then you have a stone that will mess with your PH and buffer the water -- this will stress out the fish and have them die almost instantly(within a few hours to a couple of days)

Given your water hardness I doubt the rock could of killed them.Unless a large amount of it was used, like using it as gravel. I have very similar ph and GH and have never had issues using clam shells, which actively bubble in vinegar. Most are a couple years old and are slowly dissolving. A few shells or calcium based rocks will not hurt a tank with a fairly neutral pH and medium-high buffering capabilities. If it did you would of seen a moderate pH increase in the tank.

Have you used any cleaners/chemicals near the tank? anything you think could of gotten in them?
