I added 2 red finned borleyi to my 125 gallon tank and they both died suddenly. I added them on Friday and I did a 20% water change over the weekend and another one last night. About an hour after the change they both died within minutes of each other... I think one of my heaters might have gone and the temp might have dropped below 75. All of my water parameters tested fine and none of my other fish were affected. Are they very sensitive to temperature.

Stocking list
5 Silver Dollars
10 rainbowfish
2 peacocks
1 turq. hap
1 yellow tail acei
1 elec. yellow lab.

No I did not have them in a QT tank. I think the water change may have made it too cold and about an hour later the 2 of them were dead... All of my other fish were okay. One of my peacocks is slightly aggressive, but he wasn't chasing them around.
