3 Dead Fish in One Day?

As per my LFS; by black ocellaris scratched his eye and got a bacterial infection. I brought him to the LFS and they are treating him there. Today I took him in and today 3 Fish died. Could the infection of wiped out the fish in my tank?
I have only 2 left. 1 chromi and 1 clown goby.

My water is perfect, the only thing I know is wrong w my tank is I dont have enough LR, I got into a bigger tank so I need about 20lbs of more LR, could this have anything to do with it?

I also only have 2 blackfoot snails; I cant find the other one. Could it be dead somewhere and killing the fish? Could it have crawled out of the tank? I have lids, there is small openings where the HOB filter is and skimmer.

My ammonia was at 0.25 for a few days but did a WC yesterday and its good now.

How old is the tank? Did it cycle? To have zero nitrates and some ammonia be present kinda tells me that it's not cycled.

A month. I had my ammonia spike to 8, than drop, than trates and trites spiked than dropped. My LFS said it sounds like it did cycle. I did the raw shrimp thing. I did have an over feeding problem a couples days ago. Lots of food in filter. Also a dead snail i believe might be somewhere i can't see.

Did the fish die suddenly or were there any signs of distress or difficulty breathing?

Everyone was doing fine? Eating as well no one looked stressed. The clown started w a white dot, like a spec of sand. Than today it looked like ick or something only on its one eye. Lfs says bacterial infection. We took him out and as soon as we returned from the store. 3 were dead, found 4th in its hiding spot dead too.
