    jm82792,
    How long has your tank been set up?
    It takes about 4 weeks for the tank to cycle. If it has not cycled yet you might lose more fish.

    About the plants I had in my tank.
    The triangle shaped leaf plant I think was some kind of Anubias. That was a long time ago, and the plant did not like my conditions and I ended up taking it out.
    Do you mean the plant on the "left" that looks like tall grass? That is Cryptocoryne crispatula var. Balansae.
    The long leaf foreground plants, grouping on the left and a single plant in front of the drift wood is Cryptocoryne wendtii.
    The short grass plants are Sagittaria subulata.
    All the green just off center is Javamoss.

    No I have not ,my dad got them sorta without me knowing he kept salt and felt confident..
    So This thing has been running for 2 or so weeks and the fish a week or so.
    My dad told my mom to get guppies from (guess where?) Wall-mart so when I got them I was ultra paranoid about ick,stress and other diseases but After netting(carefully) each guy and looking at them pretty carefully I don't see any parasites or other disease ironically my mom said they got there shipment the same day ..
    I have known about the cycle but was told by a few hobbyist that the plants will work and they will carry bacteria to "seed" the gravel.
    So well hopefully not a screw up since
    I forgot the death was within 24 hours of having them..
    I'll get a test kit as soon as I can.

    No female guppies? I'd toss in one female and in about 6 months you'll have bazillions to enjoy!

    Okay 25% change of warm 25 Celsius water,they seem fine no gill irritation,gasping or any poisoning symptoms or anything going to get a test kit as soon as I can. They seem very happy and energetic. In theory those plants carried the bacteria on the leafs like colonies and there part of the cycle but when I test the water then I'll know for sure.
    I want to get some females my problem is your supposed to get 2 for every male so the females don't get overly bugged but I want more males and other fish so no females maybe in another tank since these aquatic plants are growing like nuts (my water is hard well water is that it ?)
