How to recover after losing all my stock?

I lost all of my fish except for a single otto cat after adding a glow in the dark rock. Before I add any fish, I need to know how to recover. I don't want any fish to die because I didn't recover the tank correctly. What should I do to make sure everything will be safe for new fish?

Sounds like something harmed their gills and smothered them. I would change out 50% of the water 3-4 times in a three week period before putting more fish in.

In the future, if your fish would not see it in nature, don't put it in your tank. Colored gravel and decorations kill fish everyday. Keep it to strate substrate, drift wood and rocks unless it is alive.

Could be. One of my Platy's gills looked inflamed a few hours before he died.
