When a tank is new such as yours was there can be a build up of ammonia which can kill a fish. It's very important with a new tank to test the water daily & to do water changes as required, which is usually very frequent. I'm only guessing but I have a feeling this is why he died. If you choose to get another fish you will need to make sure to get a liquid water test kit, test the water daily & do water changes as needed. This will go on until you have 0 ammonia, 0 nitrates 10-20 nitrates for a week straight, it can take 4-6 wks so be prepared.
