What are the water parameters?

pH, ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, salinity?

You didnt exactly give us 'useful' information.

One poster asked your water parameters and you replied that they are supposed to be such and such...'supposed to be' is not correct. You should have tested for ammonia, pH, nitrite, nitrate and salinity.

Im sorry for your loss.

i can only guess that "every fish you own dies" because your tank are not completly cycling

a completely cycled tank will tank longer but will lead to a longer term success.

im sorry for your loss, but i hope you can learn from it.

These are brackish fish- I assume because you said you hadn't added salt yet that the SG was pretty much 1.0? I would advise doing a major water change and beginning to raise the salinity to help save your other fish. Brackish fish in freshwater conditions will likely have little appetite, energy and a very poor immune system.
