it takes about 2sec. it cant be the Phosphate all my oldest cory is fine so is my frog and coolie loach.

Oh God yes! If you've medicated and fish are dying...

I never use anything but salt for medication.

Dump the water.... a little bit all day long say no more than a gallon at a time waiting at least an hour between.

Is your water chlorinated???

Small tanks are tricky, the less water you have the less room for mistakes.
