How big is your tank?I think the first one is a ropefish and the second one is a small flower cichlid. Ropefish eate frzn bloodworms,live tubefix and guppies. There is alot more but I am just listing the ones I can think of. Flower Horns should eat regular flakes or pellets.

You probably just fed them to much. cut back on the food. also do more frequent water changes. if you need more help.. what are you water parameters, filter, etc.

Your tank is too small for the fish you selected. You should get a bigger tank or trade the fish back for better choices.

Also is this tank brand new, if so it's probably not cycled and that's where the cloudiness issue comes in. And possibly what killed the ropefish.
