Dwarf Gourami Help

Hi All

I have 3 Royal red Dwarf Gouramis. But recntly one of them seemed to lose its colour and lose all its weight. I was concerned that he was not getting any food ( though i have never known a Gouromi not get enough food) anyway i decided to get a quarantine trap and feed him on his own. Unfortunately by the time i got home from the shop he had died. My concern is that my other gouramis might start to show the same symptoms. They are fine at the moment but i don't want to lose any more. Any advice would be appreciated

What size tank?

Is the tank cycled?

What are your water parameters?

What else is in the tank?

How long have you had these 3 fish?

Just lost blue dwarf gourami this morning - found him hanging in tank, slightly swollen stomach. Moved to quarantine and he was gone in 2 hrs. Just like that. Was happy for over a year in 20 US gall high tank with 4 black widow tetras, 6 neons, pleco and 2 cories. Acknowledge slightly overcrowded but some were unavoidable relocations. All got on well together. Only differences in environment in last few days - high humidity alternating with cool (NSW flooding again) and question: I trimmed the ribbon weed at last water change. Will that do anything to the water?
Are your fish new? Some of my early fish lost colour and died if I had water problems.
