It's just a standard aqueon 55 ATM but I mean it can't b that bad as I put juvenile platy fry in that tank once they are big enough to not get eaten. and that guppy that died showed no signs of struggling in the water flow. It was quite active and colorful

Rams might attack a pesky guppy. Plecos are territorial so that's another suspect. Rosy barbs can be bullies.

One other option is that they had issues transitioning to the new tank. Did you QT these fish at all? The male could be pestering the new additions. It's just a bunch of guesses at this point.

The male guppy hasn't even looked at them, he's been chasing my platy females. The barbs aren't harassing them. Nor is the pleco. I thinking just didnt take to the tank well.the other female doesn't move much at all so I'm thinking it's just bad stock at this point. I'll try feeding some bloodworms to see if she reacts. If not it's depressing but so is life at times. And no I don't have a qt tank but I did acclimate them for an hour
