Wow! Now there's devotion to the hobby!
Agree with the other posters... regarding the fish deaths, need a little more info to help out. Along with the other questions, how long had the fish been in the tank, and how long has it been up and running.
Regarding the rash... when you say it happens every time you clean the tank, what exactly does "cleaning the tank" involve. Kinda sounds like a dumb question, but I just didn't want to assume I knew what that meant! My arms get a little itchy from time to time if they're in the tank too long, but never a rash.
