I have a 20 gallon tank that has been set up since Christmas. We have not had any trouble out of the tank or fish losing only two when it was first set up. All the levels and temp are the same as always. I have also been doing water changes like always. The tank recently developed green water. We were told it was from the light being on too much and to do often water changes and turn out the light. I uped the water changes and turned the light off more. This was four weeks ago. The tank is still green but now my fish are dying. We have lost three fish in three days and most of my mollies are very lathargic and laying on the bottom. I have an irridecent shark and an alge eater that are also very affected. The fish that are dying are looking very poor and bad when they die and there mouths have all been open. What could be going on and what do I do?

Whatever you do, don't take the other advice on here to drain the tank and "rinse" everything off - worst thing you could do! Your tank is seriously overstocked.
