Nightmare!

Went a brought new fish yesterday.
Got 4 guppies 2 red 2 blue.
2 rams.
4 scissor tetras.

I already had 8 neon tetras and 2 algae eaters.
We added the new fish into the cycled tank yesterday. About an hour later one of the blue guppies had died. So we thought coincidence but this morning when I checked the tank the other 3 guppies had died and through the day 4 of the neons have died.
I've checked the water parameters and there all spot on so I don't understand. The tank is 95 litres.
Any ideas would be grateful thank you

Possible virus. New fish should always be quartined.

Also adding a ton of fish at one time may shock the system due to increased bioload
