Are you speaking of Swordtail Fish or sword Plants?

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

I believe your fish died due to the fact that your aquarium wasn't cycled. It taked longer than one week for this to happen. Here's a helpful article that explains cycling in detail:

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...
