Hi everyone! I don't know what's going on in my tank. Everyone seems fine then I notice a dead fish! Over the course of about 4 weeks we've lost 4 fish.
We now have 9 african cichlids in a 75 gallon tank. They are various sizes from 3.5" - 6". And the fish the are dying have been all different sizes. We lost one of our biggest fish. My husband thinks it's bullying because they all seem healthy. We definitely have a hierarchy but there isn't one fish we notice worse than the others. They all chase each other. Occasionally 2 or them might do the little lip dance that they do but they have never connected. We have rearranged the tank and we just graduated from a 55 gallon to 75 gallon 2 weeks ago.
Is this bullying or any other ideas would be great!

Also that fish in timeout is no longer in timeout. My husband thought he was the culprit but I don't think so.

Before the fish die, do they sit in one spot, and breath heavy? Are there any signs of stress before death? Do your fish have damage fins, or torn apart?
