Comments: FISH UPDATE

Sounds like a fungus amoung us. It's really hard to clean a tank after that happens. Everything involved has to be thorougly sterelized, the gravel or sand in the bottom, the pump, the tubing, the tank, EVERYTHING, otherwise the new fish will get it, too.
I would, if I wanted to have an aquarium, get my supplies and fish from somewhere other than where I got the ones who carried the fungus into your tank. And check out who their supplier was so you didn't even get from the same supplier to the shop.

I think it's ick. Either one of the new fish had it, or there was a temperature change in the tank.

You need to treat the water in the tank if you decide to start anew. You can buy medicine at the pet store.
