Worst stock of fish you have had?

What is the worst stock of fish you have ever had? Mine is an Auratus cichlid, electric yellow cichlid, kenyi cichlid, jewel cichlid, red zebra cichlid, and 2 silver dollars. XD I actually still have them and they are doing fine and I've had them for awhile too! XD I just got lucky! But people always gave me problems about it even though they don't fight, but I know they're just trying to help

Sucking catfish - they never bothered the fish much but used to vanish inside the underground filter. I used to buy more as I'd think they had died only to find a whole tribe there when I eventually pulled up the filter which from memory was once a year.

Ok a year ago when I first started my stocking list was a terrible random mishmash of fish. 3 gold fish 1 chinnese algae eaters 2 redd eye tetra 1 zebra danio 1 emerald cory 3 rosy red minnows. Terrible, I know. My gold fish were all rehomed to a pond and the minnows lived in my 55 gallon for a while. I still have the red eyes and my zebra danio died during the transfer to the 55 gallon. The emerald cory was recently alive until a month ago he suddenly died... now I have a properly stocked tank since them and I'm very glad with how much I've grown in my year and a half of fish keeping.

Oh and I think they die because they get injected with chemicals to "glow" and be green,yellow,etc. It's actually really sad just like how sometimes they cut parrot cichlids tails to be a "heart" shape, it really bothers me >

Yeah I'm sure that's it too. It would be helpful if the experiment they were made for actually worked, but now it's just fish genocide lol
