Did you check the salinity of the tank water after you microwaved it? You tend to have a lot of evaporation in the microwave. 1.023 is kind of pushing it on the high end for rotifers, and if you salinity went up in the microwave, ... well, I have absolutely killed off rotifer cultures by screwing up and letting the salinity get off on the high side.

Good luck!
