Help! I feel so bad....

Ok, so I'm a first time fish owner who didn't do her homework beforehand. I wanted some nice pets for my 3 and 4 year old sons. Thought some fish would be nice (don't really like dogs...husband is allergic to cats). We bought a 10 gallon tank, set it up and went shopping for fish. My boys love Nemo so we got some clown loaches and angel fish. The two angel fish died within a week. So, we got a couple more clown loaches. We now have 5 and they are all infested with Ick!

And I only have them in a 10 gallon tank!!! So maybe it's my fault that I shopped at Wal-mart, but why do they sell them and not tell what small tanks will do to them?? I feel horrible. Please, please tell me what to do. What
