Yeah, six fish in one month is a red flag, unless this is a big tank. Probably too much bio load for the BB to handle at once (even if tank was properly cycled). Already asked, but what size tank, what were the fish and how did you cycle the tank?

Oops...missed that. Now I'm wondering what six fish and whether they were all added at once...

Same here. I'm gonna say all were added at once and the tank wasn't cycled.

Waiting for OP to respond so we can all help out.

That's some list for a 46 gallon now front. Maybe the bio load was too much.

Just a shot in the dark.

How bad was pH out of whack? When was the last time you checked it?

pH swings will harm or even kill sometimes of there that drastic.

the ph will raise throughout the day during your photoperiod. Make sure you test when the lights come on and also before the lights go off, do this for about 3 days in a row and make sure the readings are constant. If not, something is off.
