New tank setup, all parameters good, 8 Fish dead

We had a black beard algae problem and decided to break our 75 gal tank completely down and start over. We set up the new tank with a new filter, and cleaned rocks. The temp was 78, no nitrates, no nitrites, ph at 7. Put 6 silver dollars, 3 turquois rainbows, a red tailed shark,and bottom feeders. Striped Raphael, blue crawdad, stick catfish, golden algae eater. All 6 silver dollars and 2 of the rainbows died overnight. All of the bottom feeders and the shark were fine. What did we do wrong?

We used Start Right in the tank as well as Stress Coat. The bottle said you can add fish immediately, but we waited a few days.

Tank was not cycled, ammonia poisoning killed your fish unfortunately.


You should look at a fish in cycle or try for some cycled media.
