What am i doing wrong?!

I'm having issues with my guppies. Initially I had girls and boys in the same tank (recipe for disaster, right?!) and separated them after a month. All my girls (apart from my albino one) were pregnant and only one has had a successful birth, the other four have all died whilst still heavily pregnant with a red patch by the birthing hole. Levels have always looked fine - Low levels of nitrite and 0 for the others. Am I doing something wrong? The one that died today had been visibly pregnant for about two months

Argh sorry brain fried from work - I meant nitrate! It's a 60L, has been fully cycled (fishless) since May, well planted and currently has 3 guppies and 4 otos... And about 5 RCS.
