We really need to know more about your tank.

Is it heated?
Is it filtered?
How many gallons does it hold?
How long has it been setup?
When were the fish added?
Did you go through a cycle?
Water Change Schedule?
Water Parameters (Provided with a LIQUID test kit)?
What are the other fish?

We need to know all of this to help you out.

What are a zebra del and a pinkie? Do you mean Zebra danio?

The tank needs to be heated and filtered. Also, it needs to be at least 5 gallons, better yet 10 because of the tankmates you have. A 1.5G will hold nothing but a handful of shrimp.

Your tank also failed to cycle, but a 1.5G unfiltered tank will never do that.

Here is a great post about cycling. It is the second post.

In order to fix this, you need to upgrade your tank a provide proper care.
