Ok maybe elaberate a bit more. What fish is dying? I need to know what the amonia and nit, nitrates are. The tank is only a few months old. It may not be cycled for sum reason. Do your fish fight alot? If you could seperate your sentences so that way i could better understand them. Thanks. What temp is your tank set at? Do you do 25 percent water changes once a week? Have you added any type of cemicals?

At 85F you will keep losing common livebearers. They should be kept at less than 80F and many of them would be better off at 75F or less.
