We just got a fish tank for the kids a few days ago. We followed all the instructions on the the tank, set it up and set the filter up and put the stablizer and stuff in the water and let it run for a while before we went to get the fish. We got 5 glofish. This was Friday and by now 3 of them have died. The water loooks awful and murky and has a really strong smell. I have never seen water get like this in just 2 days! My sons fish died and he is so upset. I want to try to save the last two. What can I do to fix the tank? What do I do with them while I clean it? Please help! I had fish all the time growing up and I remember helping to take care of them and never had this kind of problems.Answer Question

Are you sure the filter is working right? Like allabout said, take the other fish out, even if it's in a bucket or something then redo the tank. See if the water stays clear for a while before putting the existing fish back in. Sounds like the filter is working properly.
