    I have lost one star fish, a pepermint shrimp both a day after a water change. My water changes I've always done about 20% of my 65 gallon tank using distilled water. This time I needed a bit more Distilled water because I ran out of what I had, so I used about two gallons of tap water. Ya I know,,,bad idea !! What traces are in the tap water that probly killed them?

    Sometimes cooper is too high in tap water... but its just an idea, dont know if a small amount of cooper in your tap water could have have make an effect... you only have aded 2gal/65gal of tap water...
