Thanks for the help everyone, I talked to the people at the pet store where we bought them and they said the same. They are just young and not experienced.Because it sounds like we did everything right.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

Well they're at it again, 3 days ago we noticed the female sitting in the food dish?? And then the male was trying to put nesting material in the dish. So I was like oh crap so I went and got another nest and put it in the cage and within 2 hrs the male was adding to the nest, and now we have 2 eggs in there! We sre feeding them fresh veggies plus a egg food the girl at the pet store suggested plus there normal seed mix. Lets hope things work out better this time :)

Just and update and it does have a happy ending, The second nestlings also died. My wife was very upset. After doing some research and talking to a bird vet, we think we my have been desturbing the male and female to much during the first few days after the eggs hatched. Since we live in an Apartment things are a little tight, so we let them try one more time. This time we seperated the dining room(where the cage is) from the living room with bed sheets. And only went near the cage to just feed them give them water or clean the cage! Well it worked, we now have 2 healthy 20 day old baby finches. Here's so pics.
