banggai cardinal fish

i had 5 of these guys together and they just died one by one the same way. it's like they got "too tired" they just lied on their side and went to sleep. i have a 72 gal tank with corals and inverts, goby, blenny, and a orchid dottyback.

does anyone think i know what happened?

Did the dottyback harass them at all? I wouldn't be surprised if the dottyback was in the tank first.

how long have you had them? were they eating? what was the acclimation process?
the answer to these questions may help us figure it out, along with posting your tank parameters.

had them for a week until the death started one day after another all dead. 4 of them were eating. one was not. drip acclimation for all of them. they were active, but it's like they got tired or something.

tank: 0 ammonia, 0 nitrites, 8.3 ph, 79 degrees, 15-20 nitrates.

Banggai are rather fragile shippers, it could be that they just succumbed to shipping stress. I have no other answer for you then that.
