yes. feed the tank with some flake or whatever once a week or so to keep the bacteria fed.

How long did you have your other fish in the tank before you added the one that died?

they were all in at the same time.this dart fish was a longer survivor i guess.i figured it was because he was staying in the middle and not near the top or bottom.he didnt have any spots on him and he ate yesterday.maybe it is something worse than ich.i lost alot of money i no that.i just hope what ever it is will dye in a few months

I am not sure how you can kill velvet it is so fast that some people don't even know that their fish had it till it kills all the fish in the tank.... If it was me personally I would take everything out of the tank and sterilize it and start over. That is only my opinion. Hopefully someone with more experience with this diease can chime in and advise.

I would wait out the ich life cycle, and then add one fish every couple weeks. You added 7 fish at once. That's not a good idea. Guaranteed you had an ammonia spike and that's what brought on this issue.
