weird. i would recommend getting your water tested asap and post the results. im sorry for your loss. =( i hate it when a fish dies, much less all of them. about how long has your tank been established? any diseases lately? abnormal behavious? water quality? heater failure? please post those water params asap so we can help determine what happened.

More like columnaris.:) Symptoms are white-edged scales, white lips and clamped fins. External bacterial treatments would help. Columnaris is often called false NTD(Neon-tetra disease) as some fish enthusiasts tend to falsely diagnosed the Neon tetras' symptoms for the true NTD quite often. I wouldn't be explaining about NTD as it's not necessary right here.:wink2:

How long has it been running?

Comets as stated in your previous threads cannot fit in your tank and are totally incompatible with your fish. Let alone guppies and neons which may end up in the comets' guts soon.:blink:

I haven't gone to my email account yet but I'll inform you if I can identify it. If not, I'll resize and upload them if I have time later. With too much kilobytes, I cannot reload them in about 2 hours.:blink:

No, it doesn't. However, it can kill if you put too much salt in your tank with salinity increasing beyond freshwater life.
Its benefits for short-term(applies only to those intolerant of salt long-term) are production of slime coat allowing your fish to be shielded from parasites, elimination of parasites and allowing fish to survive well in a tank of high nitrites.

i would still recommend posting your water quality parameters. from a test. ph, nitrate, nitrite, ammonia, etc. these may have had a hand in the demise of your tank...and i dont think that he has the comets in there anymore blue. i remember that from a previous thread....

how long has your tank been running, months, days, years?

thanks!
