If you know your fish has ich, you should research up on that. Make sure you tell us your exact parameters, if your tank is cycled, and when you got the fish. I'm assuming you didn't quarantine them? If you don't treat your whole tank for ich, then most likely all of the fish will get infected.

If you could fill out the template, it will help the forum to help you better. A photo of your tank is great too.

Hi, the fish seems to have a case of nitrate/nitrite poisoning?

What are the water parameters and can you conduct a 50% water change?
Yeah I already tried

Is your tank cycled? If not then it's a miracle that the fish have made it this far.
Are any other fish showing signs of illness?

Although it's not the worst I've seen, the fish that has sadly died appears to be a comet or shubunkin goldfish. Comets and shubunkins are common-type goldfish, and these goldfish get to a minimum of a foot long as adults, are extremely messy and require either unreasonably huge tanks or the much better alternative of ponds as adults. Can we see pictures of every fish in your tank?

Even despite this, fancy-type goldfish require a minimum of 20-30 gallons for the first one and 10-20 gallons for every subsequent fish each. It is improbable that your 35 gallon could accommodate 2-3 fancy-type goldfish in the long run.

If you don't want to upgrade to a bigger tank, it's advisable that you sell/give away your remaining goldfish and instead keep smaller, cleaner tropical fish that will happily thrive in a 35 gallon tank.
