Have your read up on cycling your tank? Many people think you can just buy fish and toss them in the tank and your set to go. The fish start to die because they can't handle it when the tank starts to cycle. The ammonia levels start to spike within the first couple of weeks and the fish die. If you take the time to cycle your tank properly your fish should live a full health life.
