 hi  depb
 
 always  give  specification  of  your  tank,filter,how  many  fishes,what  food  u  give  and  water  changes,then  it  is  easy  for  others  to  help  you.
 
 any  ways,  try  50%  water  change  and  add  some  rock  salt.

 mine  is  24x12x12  tank.
 home  made  bio-filter.
 river  sand,  rocks  and  drift  wood.
 Plants  -  cabomba  and  vallisneria.
 Food  :-  Tokyo
 
 Current  :-  Wild  caught  Danios,  Platy  babies  and  guppies(3  Male  &  3  Female)  and  a  Fighter,  Rainbow  Shrimp
 Initially  :-  Danios  (wild),   Platy  pair,  guppies  (5-M  and  3-F),  Fighter  and  Rainbow  Shrimp.
 
 Today  I  have  noticed  white  spots  on  my  guppies  and  I  am  getting  worried  as  the  population  is  gradually  shrinking.

 Fighter  have  different  different  technics  to  combat  an  opponent.  Some  of  them  attacks  only  gills.  No  body  will  know  why  other  fish  are  dead.  Chuckle  
 So  Keep  that  territorial  betta  separate.
 I  also  think  Your  tank  is  infested  by  Fungus.  Change  each  time  30%   water  3  times  a  week  and  Add  rock  salt.  Sorry  for  your  loss.

 thank  you  all  ...
 
 I  have  added  rock  salt  as  advised  and  also  used  methylene  blue  ....
 but  before  I  did  all  these  all  my  guppies  died,  now  only  my  wild  caught  danios  ,  the  fighter  ,  the  rainbow  shrimp   and  platy  babies  survived.  
 
 you  all  are  correct  my  tank  got  infected  by  fungus  and  it  resulted  to  the  deaths  of  my  fishes  ....  hope  now  the  water  has  stabilised  and  the  remaining  survive.
 
 Should  I  change  the  water  now  or  wait  ?  If  advised  to  change  then  what  should  be  the  proportion  ?

 Many  people  forget  the  ageing  in  fishes.  If  the  fishes  are  fully  grown  then  may  be  they  are  also  old  and  have  lived  their  life  span.  ofcourse  desease  is  the  main  reason  too.  But  yours  is  a  planted  tank,  so  treating  will  also  be  a  problem.  Seperate  the  fishes  and  treat  them  with  kitchen  salt.

 Ok  One  more  thing.  If  the  tank  is  planted  u  need  to  check  .
 that  if  any  of  your  fish  is  dead,  rotting  and  hidden  behind  anything  like  rocks  or  plants.
   Remove  them  asap.  Thats  one  of  the  reason  for  Fungus  and  parasite  boom.

 Nice  to  know  that  your  fish  are  now  getting  healthy.
 However  patience  is  the  most  important  component   in  this  hobby.
 Do  not  add  anything  for  at  least  one  month,  change  25%  of  water  every  week.
 In  the  meanwhile  research  for  the  fish  you  want  to  keep,  post  them  here  so  that  members  can  guide  you.
 Then  introduce  them  slowly  in  your  tank.
