210 gallons or 210 liters? Also what is in the tank with these fish? And what are you testing for, what are the levels, etc. What kind of water are you using for your tank's water changes? What are you feeding? And how old is your tank?

Temp is a little high. Everything else looks good. The only two things I can think of are

1. Did all the fish come from the same supplier? Might be an issue with the supplier depending on how long they were in your tank.

2. You have a couple of fish in there that tend to develop some dominance and aggression issues with similar species or conspecifics. Have one or two of the established fish been picking or bullying the new guys?

Just a couple of suggestions.

go with around 77-78, how are you acclimatising them,if it is due to bullying then maybe rearrange some of the rock work just before adding any more fish.Another way maybe to add a large breeder tank into your display and put the new fish in it so they can all see each other but cant touch each other for a while?
