fish dying

I've had a couple fish struggling to swim, not eating and then die.
Now I've had a seemingly healthy sword die.
Did a half tank (20 gal tank) water change and removed dead amazon sword plant.
All water parameters check within proper range.
Any suggestions?

Can you give more information, how many fish and what kind?
Temperature?
Filtering?
Feeding? (over or under) usually over feeding is a big problem.
Do you change water regularly?

12 fish...4 neons, 4 tetras, 2 small corys, 1 small pleco, 1 remaining sword
temp was around 78 degrees, lowered to 76
feeding is once a day, usually gone within 2 minutes, so I think not over or under
Using a Fluval C3
Do regular water changes with the exception of letting the last interval go a little long

How long have you had the fish? Was your tank cycled when you added them? Did you add them all at once or just a couple at a time?

Amazon swords go through an ugly stage and may even lose a few leaves when they are first introduced to a tank. Do you think that may be the case with your plant?

This is a cycled tank and the fish have been in for quite a while.
I have not added any new fish in the past few months.
The amazon swords have also been in for a while, over 6 months.
