Thanks in advance!
There has to be more to the story. What are your exact numbers? Ammonia, nitrites, nitrAtes, pH. What's your temp? Do you use any chemicals? Do you use cichlid salts or any salts?
The one that passed, did it look beat up? Any markings? What's your light schedule and feeding schedule like? NOTHING has changed at all? Not ONE thing? Water changes? When was the last one before the fish died?
Have you noticed one showing more color then all the rest? Maybe out more then the others? One possibility is a hyper dominate fish that has claimed the entire tank to themselves so every fish is now an enemy and doesn't belong I'm the tank. Not saying that's the case here but wanted to give you something to look for. I had one that killed 20 fish under the cover of night.
There's a reason there all hiding, there not acting hungry when you walk by, that's not a good sign.
Are they eating at all?
