I would think that aside from the parasites, the toll from being transported to another tank while already infected with ich weakened it a lot that the ich was able to overwhelm the fish easily.

lost him at 4 a.m. went to the pet store and did a test this morning nitrate and nitrite were at 0 amonia was .5 and ph was 7.5 I did a partial and all the levels were normal. I read that fish medications can kill the good bacteria in the tank?

QC can kill BB. Watch water parameters for next few days or if you have another established tank, borrow filter media there for that tank to stabilize nitrogen cycle.

I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. At least, you did everything you can. Cheer up.
