I added the sailfin molly that is nou sick and the platty that died about two weeks ago to the tank. The usual way about 10 minutes still in the bag the then a bit of my tanks water and wait about twenty mins and then more water from my tank to the bag, wait again a few minutes then let them swim out. I also bought two guppies with the mplly and platy one died the next day and the other one is still alive. I use a normal sponge filter. I have one live plant in the tank and one plastic. The tank has been setup for about three months. I cleand it thouroghly after a discus my dad bought died in it and made all the fish I had very sick. A third of my older fish had died. But the tank healed after that that's why I decided too get the fish that didnot have partners any more partners o yeah, I also have two gouramis. The tank is I think 40 liters it could be more. It is a very old tank it stood empty for years. I do not know how to work out hou big it is. I also do not have a testing kit I did not realize it was neccesary until someone on this site suggested I get one.

Is it a standard four sided (square or rectangular) tank? Take measurements of it's height, width and length - post those here and we can help you calculate the volume. The volume is going to be key because, as I mentioned in your other thread, a tank the size you are estimating is entirely (dangerously) too small for the bio-load of fish you are keeping in it. The size of tank/bioload and the length of time the tank has been up point me towards the likely cause being toxicity issues caused by poor water conditions.
