    Maybe you city switched from chlorine to choloramines. chloramines will not "evaporate" like chlorine would. The water may still be soft but not treated the same way. About two years ago my city water switched and instantly my fish let me know with heavy breathing and brown algae.

    Oh,I've got exactly the same problem.But here in my collections my VTF is the only victim of this disease.It has been suffering from it for half a year and completely withered yesterday. I assume that perhaps because it is more vulnerable to fungus attack. Plus, I 've been using exlusively distilled water so that I'm pretty sure the death of my VTF doesn't result from mineral accumulation .

    I think Jason is right on. Letting your water sit shouldn't do much.

    I hope your collection gets through this ok.... best of luck to ya.

    If you do suspect your water is the problem, you can always invest in an inexpensive TDS meter. Do a google or amazon search. I've found mine to come in quite handy for monitoring the quality of the rainwater I collect.

    Have you experimented with Trichoderma? From personal experience I have never seen any negative effect from it and it seems that once the plants encounter it they thrive as it boosts their immune system.

    I'm guessing water quality too.

    Get a TDS meter ASAP. Test all your water for your CP's.
