saltwater fish lying on side

Help! All the saltwater fish in my tank are lying sideways on the bottom of the tank. Recently, one fish that was on the sand died. Does anyone know why this is happening and how to rectify it?

Check your aquarium PH and CO2 diffuser.Your water salinity might just be wrong.When have you change the sandbed as most waste gets trap there.Check air pumps and if possible re-do the whole setup to rescue what ever left of your fishes

How did you even make the tank?
My mom and dad do not allow me to even bring a live fish home to keep!
