hopefuly you dont mean 5hrs. after yo set up the tank?
If so your tank didn't have time to cycle yet and that is what killed your fish.

Did you test your water?
What were the results?
Do you do weekly water changes?
What type of fish do you keep?

Sorry so many ? but need info to figure this one out.

you shouldn't dose Calcium unless you know what the parameters are. calcium AND Alk need to be balanced, so hopefully u tested for both prior to dosing. Also it is probly safer for you to use a two part buffer such as bi-onic. or you could simply drip a kaulk solution for evaporated water. which is most common i believe.
