Well to be hones no one can tell you what exactly happened...
It could be stress, it could be bloat,water conditions…no one can say...

My advice refers to what should you do now… transfer the fishes into another tank, if you have one and change water completely, if not change approx 50% of water and add some water treatments like chlorine neutralizers and stuff…I don't know what else to say.

Something like that happened to me, in my case it was Ps. Coral Red, I was alarmed but all I could do was what I wrote you above…

Sorry if I am brute but that's the way it is…

It could be from aggression, illness or water quality issues.

I see no need to change all the water out without testing the parameters first. Do you have readings for your ammonia, nitrite, nitrate and ph levels?

How often do you do tank maintanence on this tank?

What size tank is it?

What are the inhabitants?

Do you have adequate filtration and water circulation on the tank?

Was the fish holding eggs/fry at the time of death?
