have you cleaned the filter since you setup the tank? only use old tank water so the good bacteria don't die. the reason the fishes died maybe due to the tank not being cycled enough or the water not being clean enough. is the filter big enough to keep the water clean? are there active carbons in it? i find the carbons help by soaking up chemicals that are deadly to fish in high amounts, but since you have plants the carbon shouldn't be in there for a long time, i suggest putting it in after a water change and taking it out the next day but thats just IMO.do you use anti chlorine?

going on what was just stated your filter, how old is it? It could be time for a new one... that is a possibility. If the carbon has been used too much etc it might help to replace it. if by doing this you'd have to re-cycle the tank unless you can fit the second filter in the filter to jump start the cycle on it.
