Dying Fish

I had a Dwarf Gourami die a couple days ago, and in the past 3 day I have had 3 more albino cories die. I have done a 50% water change.
I have a rainbow shark and think it may be bothering the fish or even killing them.

Any ideas what it could me???

Sometimes those sharks can be a bit agressive What size is the tank? Do the dead fish have any signs of illness? Test for ammonia/nitrite/nitrate


Even stress couls kill them (ie large waterchanges) or being harassed by an aggresive fish
ALL NATURAL sea salt is a good stress reliver. HALF a rounded TEASPOON per gallon does the trick hope this helps
