The Ruination of my 55 Gallon. 911! HELP!!

Well guys, it started with the Zebra loach. Whitish patches, loss of activity, then BOOM, dead.

Since then I've lost a Pearl Gourami, a Honey Gourami, A swordtail, a fancy guppy, a Silver Molly.

All dead, all of a sudden.

My instinct told me to purchase Maracyn I and Maracyn II, to kill whatever could bo going on in here! I've done nothing drastic to my tank, either. Besides add the Maracyn. And Last week I just added my quaratined Freshwater Puffer (not Figure-Eight, the other kind commonly available).

Like I said, I added the Maracyn. 2 tabs of Maracyn I. 2 Tabs of Maracyn II. One of my Robustas are laying on the ground on it's side, gasping, the other is vigorously swimming straight up at the top of the water. Same with my Yoyo's, one laying down, one swimming right at the top. SAME with my Darios! My Dojo's barbels are all curled up, and their eyes are whiting over, and they're frantically swimming around.

The only fish in my tank that DON'T look like they're about to die are my Modesta, my dragonfish, my two snakeskin gourami's, my two plecos, and my puffer.
