Give us the parameters of your tank:

pH
GH
KH
Nitrite
Nitrate
Ammonia
Temperature

That'll help us explain what's happening with your tank.

Most likely, fish are dying because you have not properly 'cycled' the tank.
pH: 7.2
GH: ~150 ppm
KH: ~100 ppm
Nitrite: not detectable
Nitrate: not detectable
Ammonia: I don't currently have a test for that
Temperature: 76 F
