Hi. My malawi cichlids are dying alarmingly fast. Three in the last hour. Just before they die they seem to float abnormally. Followed by vigorous shaking upside down with their mouths agape.....

Suggestions.
Im currently emptying half my water in desperation by filling it with fresh.

Make sure you're using dechlorinated water. Anything happen before they went belly up? anything new in the tank? recent water change? Test your parameters. What is your nitrite? A nitrite spike can kill quickly. Also, keep the water oxygenated. Add a power head or air stone ASAP.
