yes, an air stone wouldn't make enough oxygen dissolve into the water fast enough. Water changes to bring in more oxygen, and plants to take up the bad and give out the good cant hurt.

The ich could still be there, on the lungs of your fish, making it harder for them to breath.

Not to be gross, but did the dead fish seem to have anything wrong with them? Any kind of fungus on them or anything?

No they did not (don't worry being gross i picked them out with my hands and gave them a full look over) They did die with their mouths open but in the past this tends to be a pretty normal way for fish to die. There colors were alright and everything. I will continuing doing water changes and see if this makes any difference I have been doing about 25% every other day.

wow, mystery indeed. Can you take a water sample to your LFS and see if they will do a full water check for you? That might give you some information you don't already have.

Took a sample to the LFS and everything checked out oddly my 5 gallon tank of endler fry all seemed to die overnight as well as alot of the remaining fish in the semi aggressive. The loaches and Gouramis seem unaffected still. Now I am wondering what I should do to cleanse my tank so I can add more fish to it without them dieing on me as well.
