bad rock

If you have bad rock in your tank will it kill my whole tank or would they die one by one? Asking because I had my peacock die on me yesterday and now the other one is acting the same.... But all my other fish are acting fine and normal I'm lost

I would check the water quality. If the fish are not eating or spitting out food it is water quality or malawi bloat. What type of rock are you talking about. If you scrubbed them and ran hot water over them they should be fine. If you wish to research more, here is a thread from a local site. Pretty detailed.

Honestly I don't even know what kind of rock it is... I found it outside by my house I did scrub them and ran them under hot water and I tested vinegar on it? It didn't bubble or sizzle so I figured they be good. My tank got hit with ich awhile back but I had acouple survivors and everything has been fine... Until my peacocks started acting weird.... They are all eating and not spitting anything out. Idk if maybe there just picking on them to the point where there stressed. I just freak out about the rock but I've had the rock in there quite some time now... So stressful. I'll post a picture of the rock I have in there now.

What size were the Peacock's compared to your Livingstonii. The Livingstonii is a predator. Did they have nipped fins and body scars from being picked on?

It bites when fish die.

The one that died was a pretty decent size id say like 3 inches.... He was beautiful and im sad... I never even thought about my livingstonii being a predator?! Yeah he had nipped fins but i didn't think it was that bad but I guess if the stress gets to them.

Sorry about your fish, as hard as it sounds, fish die, stress diet and a lot of times not even our fault... meaning the history of the fish, where it came from and conditions it was raised.
How long did you have it before it died?

I've had him for atleast a good 3 months. I just feel so terrible when I lose one but I think I won't buy anymore peacocks with the stock I currently have now... Due to the aggression. He was big and in charge for the whole time I had him until he died. And he was so blue I loved it!!! So frustrating! Thank you for all your advice. (:
