    Your PH is way low and that SG is too high. What about the other params?

    No offense, but if all of his creatures are dieing the last thing I would recommend is buying more of them. The root of the problem needs to be addressed first.

    Over the next 2 weeks, get your SG down to 1.009, hypo-salinity helps battle ich. Get your pH up to 8.3, it's way too acidic right now. Also check your dkH, that may be why your pH is so low. How about nitrate levels? What type of filtration do you have? What type of water do you use? Water changes? Let's get the water good before adding more fish or replacing the ones lost. :)
