Red or Orange fish don't survive in my aquarium

Stock:
1 Medium Angel (new)
1 4" Rainbow Shark
1 Dwarf Blue Gourami
1 male Dalmatian Molly
2 female Dalmatian Mollies
3 Black Neons
4 Bloodfin Tetras
4 Cories
6 Neons
1 female Micky Mouse Platy

Anytime I add an Orange or Red fish I found them floating or they have simply disappeared.
Any thoughts, theories or personal experiences?

How big is your tank and what are your water parameters? I doubt that the color of the fish has anything to do with their health.

Health is not the issue. They died from physical trauma. I think I know which tank material is responsible and I am hoping someone has had the same problem.

"Their" death may be directly due to their color. I was hoping for validation of my suspicion.
