 Hi  Ajay,
 Can  you  explain  to  us  what  the  diagnosis  of  fellow  aquarists  was?  Since  Nirant  has  seen  the  tank  first  hand,  he  would  know  best.  Can  you  tell  us  what  he  said  the  problem  was  &  what  remedy  he  has  suggested?
 
 from  the  looks  of  your  substrate,  it  looks  like  coarse  gravel  to  me.  IMO  they  are  too  large  in  size  for  a  planted  tank.  ut  other  than  that  I  can't  tell  you  much  unless  you  give  us  the  entire  details.
 
 The  blue  coloration  will  not  harm  your  fish.  The  methylene  blue  has  that  effect  on  the  silicone  seal.  It  will  not  go  away,  but  it  is  not  harmful  either.  But  DO  NOT  USE  it  every  week.  It  is  not  some  vitamin  tablet  that  you  feed  regularly.  It  is  a  medicine  for  ICK/ICH.  So  you  have  to  use  it  only  when  your  fish  have  ICK/ICH.  
 
 Experts:  could  the  regular  methylene  blue  dosing  have  affected  the  slime  coat  and  thus  the  fish  deaths?
 
 now  do  this.  Fill  up  the  details  in  the  list  below  &  post...
 
 Tank  size  -  L  x  B  x  H
 
 Filtration  -  what  filter  -  type  of  filter,  brand/model,  how  often  you  clean  it.  How  you  clean  it  (whether  you  take  the  media  out  or  not,  etc)
 
 Lights  -  wattage  &  type  of  light  (T5,  PLL  etc)
 
 Substrate  -  branded  or  DIY  (if  DIY,  please  specify  what  all  you  have  used.  If  you  have  multiple  layers  and  what  is  each  layer)
 
 Water  -  what  water  you're  using  (municipal  or  ground  water  or  RO).  whether  you're  using  any  water  conditioners  like  dechlorinator,  pH  changers  etc.
 
 What  is  the  water  change  schedule
 
 Water  temperature
 
 Fertilization  -  what  fertilizers  (branded  or  DIY),  if  DIY  what  are  the  components,  what  is  the  dosing  routine.
 
 What  all  fish  you  have  -  also  include  any  invertebrates  that  you  may  have.
 
 what  plants  you  have.  

 
 for  the  above,  please  state  only  the  facts  and  not  opinions

 To  put  it  in  short  the  problems  were.  
 
 1]  Using  a  general  bathroom  bucket  from  the  house  for  WCs
 
 2]  Bad  Mumbai  municipal  water  +  possible  contamination  of  the  same  with  borewell  water  which  has  gone  bad  in  our  part  of  town.
 
 These  were  the  main  causes  of  fish  deaths  that  I  could  tell
 
 Plants  werent  doing  well  cos  of  low  tank  height  +  PLL  +  hood  =  high  temp  and  mainly  because  he  was  not  dosing  macros
 The  large  size  gravel  wasnt  helping  either
 
 Told  him  how  to  remedy  the  situation  for  now  and  he  will  be  setting  up  a  bigger  tank  in  a  couple  of  months  time  and  I  will  help  him  with  that
