The fish store worker told me it would help out to add the Tetramin Bacteria.. I haven't had any dead fish since.
Update -
I've been too tired after work to test the water but I have been doing 25% water change every 2 days. The fish seem to be doing a lot better. Going to test the water tonight and already made a complaint to the city about the water but nothing has been done.

I have 3 Koi Angels now, 10 Buenos Aires Tetras, 1 Royal Pleco, 1 green phantom pleco, 1 orange spotted pleco, and 4 golden ballon electric blue rams. I am thinking about adding some Congo tetras, 2 boesmani rainbow, 2 red rainbows. Was looking for a bottom feeder but not too sure if it's already overcrowded. I will post water parameters in a bit. Any insight on my 90 gallon being too crowded?

Water changes really are miraculous, whatever the issue.

The Congo Tetra would be a much better tankmate than the Rainbows because of the angelfish. Keep an eye on the Buenos Aires Tetra though, they might fin nip the male Congo tails, even if they don't bother the angelfish.

Just tested my water Parameters in my new tank.

pH - 7.6
Ammonia - 0ppm
Nitrite - 0ppm
Nitrate - 40ppm

I'm not sure why nitrates are still high...

I also started a 5gallon for my betta. Its a Fuval Spec V. I tested the water and Ammonia, Nitrite, and Nitrate were all 0ppm. Does that mean my betta is safe to add? I only had it running for a couple days

Toss in some floating plants, lots of them, and the Betta will be fine.

I have a java moss ball and some hornwort floating on top! I'm just scared the tank has not started cycling because it's a brand new tank with new everything

With the plants and only one fish it won't need to cycle in the classic sense as the plants will more than use up the ammonia produced circumventing the ammonia-nitrite-nitrate cycle. It still happens in the background but you can disregard it. The more plants the merrier but be sure to leave some surface clear for the betta to access as they like to gulp air... although I see it far less in a larger tank... better water quality means less need to gulp air I suppose.
