Yo Yo Loaches

Recently I purchased four yo yo. Within a month, three of them are dead. When I picked them at the fish shop, they all looked round. Some of their tankmates looked quite thin, and I did not buy them. I put them in my discus tank which also contains panda cory, matae cory, clown loaches, keyhole cichlids and dwarf gourmia. The tempurature of the tank is 85F. Ammonia concentration is quite low. The pH is around 6.0 but I am not sure. Last night I changed one third of the water. Therefore the pH should go up. Tonight one of the yo yo is dead. There are no outward sign of disease. They all ate quite well. Diet includes spirulina flakes, blood worm, and brine shrimp. No other tankmates die. Please help.
