Sounds like a rough start, it only gets better once u learn how to fix these things
Just a few questions:
How long has the tank been running, how long has the current filter been running?
What brand were the filters and how many gallons do they filter? Just say something about both
How did u treat the ich?
Set the heater to 77 degrees
Is this a local fish store or a petco or petsmart store you went too?
How often do you do water changes, do you do them with a gravel vac and how much you remove?
btw, most petstore workers are no experts on fish and usually steer the customer wrong. I wouldnt listen much to them. This forum has tons of info, just read up on the stickies and look around some other posts and you will find more info on things you will need to know to have a successful tank. it is rare a petstore worker will give you correct directions(they usually make you buy unnecessary chemicals or treatments)
and finally most disease comes from fish that you buy that live in bad conditions. Ich comes from the outside and pop eye comes from bad water conditions.
